You cannot do impersonation or permission elevation in Client side object model.

Please refer below mentioned links

Elevating Permissions with SharePoint’s Web Services

Elevating privileges using spservices


The SPServices library is only allowing you to do what is available through the web services.

A workaround, but not really recommended, would be to create a custom permission level that granted the ability to manage permissions and add users into this group. That would allow them to then execute your code.
