Is it possible to link/synch the Category colours to the task colours in Google Calendar. It would make understanding busy calendars much easier.

Currently the only way to do this is to generate multiple Gooogle accounts, one per colour.

Actually Category and Colors are two different properties in the CALDAV definition.
Thunderbird only supports Categories (and associates a locally significant color to it).

All other networked Calendars I know of only support Colors.

Which makes the two incompatible.

Thunderbird must rethink it's usage of Categories and Colors in order to offer a consistent experience to users who use synchronized calendars between their different devices
