Someone else can tell you why this does not work but I can tell you what
will.  Calling the function in this way:

(dtk-toggle-split-caps 1)

on a line by itself in your .emacs file will set this globally.  As
concerns the default speech rate, I can't comment on this specific
line.  I don't have this loaded so I cannot tell you about the
function.  However, I do have this in my .emacs from my use of flite:

(add-hook  'dtk-startup-hook
         (function (lambda ()
                     (dtk-set-rate 350)
;;;;;add other personal settings here 

The things I notice are the addition of function before the call to
lambda and the lack of quoting for dtk-set-rate.  It has been a long
time since I've used this particular code, though.
