I’m not sure I fully understand. You are just trying to have the fence parallel to the miter slot so that you can adjust depth of cut? You don’t need to. move the fence to the front of the bit and lock down one side. Then pivot the other side until you get the depth you want. By pivoting, you’ll change the angle you need to enter the table, but it will still be against the fence so it doesn’t matter. The depth is based on the perpendicular angle between fence and bit.

If you are actually trying to use the miter slot with the fence, then yes they need to be parallel. You can use a block of wood cut diaganolly into two wedges. attach one to the miter slot and the other along the fence. Loosen the fence and slide the miter so that the wedges meet and the fence adjusts parallel to the miter track. lock it down and your good to go.

Another option is to disregard the miter slot completely and make a sled for your fence.
