Yes the sample given says : 'elwende cullofiniel' (in a quenya mode).

Sindarin : _elleth_.

that the final -e have to be pronunced. You can drop them in mails or
mailing lists like this. I have no problem to put these dots, because I'm
french and because French use sometimes this kind of dots.
The dots are not rendred in tengwar or in cirth, because the final -ë just
sound like others -e in the words.

duplicate the root vowel in front of the word and augment the root vowel
(ie. with an acute accent, showing that the vowel is longer) :
_tul-_ > _utúlie_
_mat-_ > _amátie_
_ric-_ > _irície_
I think that words beginning with a vowel do not duplicate the root vowel.
