You will probably have to write an external method to do it the way
you show.  Exec is disallowed in DTML for security reasons, and
I at least can't think of any other way to pass a named parameter
in to a procedure call if you don't know the name of the paramter until
run time.

On the other hand, if you call the catalog via just

<dtml-in Catalog>

it will pull its search fields out of the REQUEST variable.  If you
can arrange it so that REQUEST contains just the appropriate search
variables set to the appropriate search values, you should be home free.
