Something along the following lines should work for you:

    <xsl:when test="$color='red'">
      <xsl:call-template name="text-template>
        <xsl:param name="tint" expr="'pink'">
        <xsl:param name="shade" expr="'maroon'">
    <xsl:when test="$color='violet">
      <xsl:call-template name="text-template>
        <xsl:param name="tint" expr="'lavender'">
        <xsl:param name="shade" expr="'indigo'">
      <xsl:call-template name="text-template/>

<xsl:template name="text-template">
  <xsl:variable name="color" expr="Get/Color/From/Some/@Attribute">
  <xsl:param-variable name="tint" expr="'light gray'">
  <xsl:param-variable name="shade" expr="'dark gray'">
  The color is <xsl:value-of select="$color"/>...
  The tint is <xsl:value-of select="$tint"/> (not there, is it?)...
  The shade is <xsl:value-of select="$shade"/> (not there either!)

Note the use of defaults (I copied the ones from the otherwise clause).

I hope this helps.
