RE: How do I estimate cathode bypass capacitor voltage?

The only issue is the DC voltage. If there's sufficient capacitance to bypass the cathode resistor, very little AC voltage will be present across the cap. I tend to be conservative about capacitor voltage ratings. 2:1 is my preference, which in this case would mean a cap with a voltage rating of 400V or greater.
