You probably want to try the accents fuzzy patch at

(Thanks to Joe Jah for archiving patches.)

This works along the lines of the soundex or metaphone fuzzy
algorithms. You run it after running htmerge and it will add
alternative accented or unaccented words to the query (with lesser
weight as determined by the search_algorithms attribute).

See my other message just now about the +/- of this approach or
simply stripping accented words. As you noted in your message, the
two words do not mean the same thing!
