Stupid question, why should network-manager not be killable? From my point of view everything should be killed before a shutdown except of processes, which are absolutely required to continue the shutdown/reboot. So for example if you are using unionfs-fuse for "/", "/etc" or "/var" and kill its daemon, shutdown cannot continue. But how is that related to the network manager?
Assuming there is a network file system involved, kill network-manager or dhclient should not fail the network connection, at least not unless network manager does that. But that would be a in network-manager and should be fixed instead. A simply workaround even would be to kill it with SIGTERM to give it no chance to do any harm.
