Perhaps you cannot use shell I/O redirection.  Try writing a little
script called myhtml2text which contains the following two lines:

exec /usr/local/bin/html2text -o FILTEROUTPUT < FILTERINPUT

and changing the Perl code to:

... return action_external_filter($entity, "/usr/local/bin/myhtml2text");
