I'd need the full command line output (including the startup message
which prompts for user input before execution) to be able to tell
you why:

| Executing shell: GRMLBASE/45-grub-images

doesn't seem to be executed on your system.

Though I'm a bit lost on what exactly you're doing and how your
environment looks like. Should I be able to reproduce your situation
with just taking the official grml64-small 2017.05 ISO and rebuild
that one with grml-live -e...?

As the error message says, it expects
/boot/bootx64.efi to be there
(/root/output/grml_chroot//boot/bootx64.efi in your case), that's
different from /efi/boot/bootx64.efi.
