I believe the tapered face is correct as shown If the cutout is to be cut in the flat before the part is "folded". The cutout will be cut perpendicular to the flat face, and that face will remain perpendicular when the part is formed.

If you intended to add the cutout after the part is formed, you should delete the cutout feature from the CATIA sheet metal model, and add it as a Pocket with the Part Design workbench at the bottom of the spec tree.
