I don't know of a software application designed specifically for what you seek, but here are two suggestions:
1) Your favorite spreadsheet (Excel, etc.) there are various ways to set them up to make this work
2) Card sorting tools. I have used Optimal Sort and found it to be quite easy to use. Not sure if it can handle 1000 items, and its not really for what you are looking for, but its close.

In either case, you might want to search the web for various articles about Card sorting. I know this isn't exactly what you are looking for, but its the closest thing I can think of.
