You can't really do this kind of testing with Salesforce. In this case you'd need to insert a record that couldn't be deleted, which is obviously not possible.  They way I usually handle this is to move the query out to another method and provide a way to inject the results when running tests. In that situation the query doesn't run against the database, it simply returns my injected record(s) which can be missing an ID for example to cause the delete to fail.

I can't see how your code could throw a null pointer exception so I doubt you'll be able to test that.
