While there is no plugin or something like that to allows non-admins to use certain WordPress plugins, but you can make little changes in plugin code to make sure plugins are available to use for Authors, Editors, Contributors, and Subscriber.
This involves editing your plugin. One important point, before editing your plugin make sure you contact that plugin author through WordPress support and raise the ticket. Let the plugin author assist you in the right manner to edit the plugin.

In some plugins some authors use view_level in their plugin code then you have to change administrator to whatever user role you want, so it is better to contact the plugin author before trying to make changes.
