I don't use sendmail, so just two small thoughts.

You could link the cat dirs to the corresponding man dirs before
intalling and remove them afterwards, something like this:
  cd /usr/share/man
  for i in `ls -d man?`; do ln -s $i cat${i##man}; done
following the install commands
  rm -fR /usr/share/man/cat?

But are you sure they are not already formatted?
In that case they do belong into a cat directory and you could
use man.conf to make them known. FHS has some remarks in it.
