I had to fudge something like this to get emacspeak working remotely
at all.  This is for earlier versions of emacspeak and the remote
servers via a listening port.  I'm pretty sure this wouldn't work now
but the fixes might still help your problem. 

First I wrote a trivial dummy-tcl script 
#!/bin/sh

 cat >/dev/null
----------------------------------------------------------------------
then set the relevant environment variable to point to it.
DTK_TCL=/home/users/rayner/bin/dummy-tcl

One still needs the right things to come out of emacspeak hence, in my case
DTK_PROGRAM=dtk-soft

and adding a couple of things to my .emacs 
(emacspeak-remote-connect-to-server (getenv "REMOTEHOST") 2222)
(defun reestablish-connection () (interactive) (emacspeak-remote-connect-to-server  (getenv "REMOTEHOST") 2222))
(define-key global-map "\C-ed\C-r"'reestablish-connection)

I would expect something > like this to still work but bet some

I'll be interested to see what you get working since I've been curious
about getting emacspeak working on my wife's mac as well.
cheers
