Found the problem.  I moved the included i386 openal.so out of the way 
for some reason a day earlier which is why sound didn't work on the i386 
ut2004.  To get the ut2004 64bit binary to work I just had to link 
/usr/lib64/libopenal.so as openal.so in the ut2004/System directory.  I 
didn't realize that openal.so was required in the System directory.

Sound works now for both i386 and x86_64 if I exchange the openal.so and 
the libSDL-1.2.so.0 in the ut2004/System directory with the correct 
library in /usr/lib or /usr/lib64 respectively.  I already had the RPM 
for openal(64bit and 32bit) and SDL(64bit and 32 bit) installed.
