Unless I misunderstood the question, for me as a user, it would be more
obvious to get this error in a sentinel call than not with emacs 26,
because that's how :nowait is documented to work now:

  The recommended way to deal with asynchronous sockets is to avoid
  interacting with them until they have changed status to "run".
  This is most easily done from a process sentinel.


  If bool is non-nil for a stream connection, return without waiting
  for the connection to complete. When the connection succeeds or
  fails, Emacs will call the sentinel function, with a second argument
  matching "open" (if successful) or "failed".


Given either of these guidelines, it'd be more surprising to not get
error state in the sentinel call with ":nowait t" in emacs-26.

(while ":nowait nil" signaling 'file-error is kinda expected)
