The cap of 15 is on the overall total, including bonuses and everything, which doesn't seem to me like it would negate the natural die roll being in the threat range. It might make it substantially less likely for your roll to be a success (which is a necessary prerequisite for a roll in the threat range to actually be a threat), but if the DC is 15 or less I don't see why you couldn't crit with an untrained skill.

Reading through the Skill rules I do not see anything that explicitly prevents a Threat with an Untrained Skill.  But, as TKDB said, the Check still needs to be a Success to be a Threat.

in this particular case the group's gladiator/soldier rolled a natural 20 on a bluff check, and the other npc a natural 1 on a sense motive. So definitely a success  ;D

When critting with an untrained skill in the Spy craft days, the usual practice was to have the player spend an additional action die assuming you weren't using the d20 standard that a 20 always threats/crits.
