Why is that needed?  Emacs supports linking against GnuTLS now,
including on Windows (see below).  Can you use the built-in GnuTLS
support instead of starttls?

Please show a Lisp backtrace from this error.

Once the nature of the problem is clear, of course.

As you see, your Emacs was built with GnuTLS support, you just need
the binaries and DLLs to be able to use that.  One place you can find
them is here
