The XML documents produced by XSLT processors are supposedly well-formed
XML external general parsed entities, and as such don't need DOCTYPE
declarations. You can force one to be generated by using the doctype-*
attributes on the <xsl:output> element (see Section 16.1), but as you
pointed out, you can't put variables in these attributes.

So you have to result to a hack:

<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">&lt;!DOCTYPE tldoc SYSTEM "</xsl;text>
<xsl:value-of select="$DTD_PATH" />
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">/tldoc.dtd"&gt;</xsl:text>

Note that the DOCTYPE declaration is not an element, so you shouldn't have
that trailing slash before the end of the declaration.
