Mandos was the closest analogue I could think of to the "gatekeeper of heaven" role in the original story.

I would have said Manwë, as the one closest to the mind of Ilúvatar. Mandos decrees fate, and the Elven dead rest in his halls (as do the Dwarves, according to Dwarf lore, but the Elves dispute that), but he doesn't really hold the keys to heaven or have special insight into the mind of Ilúvatar--certainly not the way Manwë does.
