Looks like I may have been a bit premature in sending this question to
Statalist.  The solution was buried in the documentation:  "The
underscores are used in clab to indicate blanks, and thereby remove
redundant titles" (p.14).  A simple change:

tabout var1 var2 using foo.tex, replace cells(freq row) format(0 1)
stats(chi2) layout(row) ///
clab(_ _) style(tex) bt font(bold) topstr(14cm) topf(top.tex) botf(bot.tex) ///
botstr(.)

Thanks!
