I was working on the same thing... Maul's right. The only place that masking works in-game is in the minimap.

If you will look closely at the image you linked, the layers will be like this, from bottom to top:

1. A round background, which is transparent at the outer edges.
2. A square 3d portrait, which is smaller than the background.
3. A round overlay, which shades away the bottom edges, so you can't see the fact that the very bottom of the 3d portrait isn't there.

I'll be done with my oUF in a week or so, if you want to bookmark my portal, then you could use the oUF code after it's done. I also have a page there about graphics, if you need to know how to get your TGAs to be transparent.

It does seem like Blizz uses round portraits, but I am fairly (90%) certain there's no way we can. Which makes no sense, but I'm not queen of the world so I didn't get to decide.
