The following piece of code seems to do what I want to do. Am I doing anything in there that I should not do or do differently?

ML {*

fun generalize_master_thm ctxt thm =
   val ([p'], ctxt') = Variable.variant_fixes ["p''"] ctxt
   val p' = Free (p', HOLogic.realT)
   val a = @{term "nth as"} $ Bound 0
   val b = @{term "Transcendental.powr"} $ (@{term "nth bs"} $ Bound 0) $ p'
   val f = Abs ("i", HOLogic.natT, @{term "op * :: real => real => real"} $ a $ b)
   val setsum = @{term "setsum :: (nat => real) => nat set => real"} $ f $ @{term "{..<k}"}
   val prop = HOLogic.mk_Trueprop (HOLogic.mk_eq (setsum, @{term "1::real"}))
   val cprop = Thm.cterm_of ctxt' prop

Just the usual hints on context-conformance of Isabelle/ML snippets:

* The @{term} antiquotations mention free variables "as", "bs", "k".  To
  which context do they belong?  If they are undeclared, the code will
  crash in a context that declares them locally.

* @{term "nth as"} is polymorphic, i.e. in invents a locally fixed type 'a
  (depending on the compilation context).  This is likely to break down
  when used in a different context.

* As a general rule of thumb, @{term} antiquotations are only useful for
  well-defined closed terms, such as @{term "1::real"}.  Variables need to
  be constructed explicitly at run-time, like p' above.

* The global context above is not immediately clear, making it hard to
  test.  Morover, it seems to use an undefined repository version, instead
  of the latest release.
