So what happens if you get 1000 CLOSED ports results through proxychains & torproxy nmap vs 1000 ports filtered through regular nmap without tor or proxychains for same ip address.

Interesting post. There is a mistake in your privoxy config description...the "." at the end of the line is missing.

But something is missing in the description. Results differs with/without proxychains with same target and same options:

root@debiannmaptor:~# nmap -PN -sT -p80 <testipadress>

Interesting ports on <testipadress>:
80/tcp open  http
root@debiannmaptor:~# proxychains nmap -PN -sT -p80  <testipadress>

You can search for an appropriate Exit Node on
