The only way you are going to get the tube square is with a hammer over a form. I imagine it will take some practice.

Other than machining a round interface into the piece that the tubes will be joined to, I think that the best way may be to use something like the paragon tube plugs for flat dropouts. The conical end goes into the tube https://www.paragonmachineworks.com/...pout-plug.html
