Can lilacs be grown in South Carolina? If so, what do we need to do with them in the winter? We have two small bushes started in pots. Should we bring them in during the winter?

Some lilac varieties do well in South Carolina. In you case, I think it would be best to visit a reputable local nursery and see what they are selling in terms of lilacs. Small local nurseries tend to sell varieties that will thrive in your area (as opposed to big box stores who often sell the same varieties across the country regardless of what does best).
