Sorry but still I don't understand your situation.

 1. You have a HTTPS/SSL client written in Perl
 2. You have a HTTP proxy server on your firewall

If these are true, I think the easiest way to pass your firewall is
just rewriting your client 1. so that it connect to the proxy 2. and
issue CONNECT method to connect the target server.  After these,
your client can communicate with the target server in HTTP/SSL.

Also I don't understand what DeleGate could do to solve your problem...
