If you can't trick the Google play servers to think you are using a different device you may have to bite the bullet and unroot it:

It should be able to be done with an app.

Once you have unrooted the device you can proceed with updating it to gain access to the Google play store.

You will need to check that the manufacturer supports the use of the device with Google play though. Strange as it may seem there have been instances where either the device doesn't support Google play store or they haven't pushed updates to support this:

You should be able to reroot later

If you deleted Google play services while you were taking out the bloatware from the tablet it would stand to reason you could reinstall it to retrieve functionality for the app that needs it to run.

The .apk files are out there, have you tried sideloading an older version of it?

While I have rooted a couple of android devices in the past I didn't go to extremes to remove bloat.

Have you tried the xda-developers forum for some advice?

a list of .apk files for different configurations hosted by xda, also you didn't by any chance see which version was installed before you removed it?
