As I read your summary, you do seem to be saying that Lewis is a "de facto" universalist, in that all people will find "complete fulfillment in Christ", regardless of what they believe or have done in life.
I don't wish to debate the idea, but I want to be sure I understand you correctly. Am I on track with your interpretations?

Using one of the Narnia books to unwrap such a complicated thought is probably a bit of folly, but even in the Last Battle the experience of Emeth seems to have been very limited, if not unique (the dogs seem to find only one Calorman in Aslan's country).
It seems to me that Aslan (God) is saying some fairly universalist ideals (namely that if you serve Tash, but do a good work, you are actually serving God).
