I don't quite understand your problem. You are testing (or at least would
like to test) for the multinomial distribution and you are talking about
normal errors. What is the relationship to the errors? and why would one
need any assumption on normal errors in order to perform a Chi-Squared
test in the spirit of Pearson or Fisher (when the parameters of the
distribution are estimated from the sample)?

Maybe by answering these questions you will solve your problem.
