test: use openssl_is_fips instead of hasFipsCrypto

Currently, when dynamically linking against a FIPS enabled OpenSSL
library test-process-env-allowed-flags-are-documented will fail with
the following error:
throw new AssertionError(obj);

AssertionError [ERR_ASSERTION]:
The following options are not documented as allowed in NODE_OPTIONS in
/root/node/doc/api/ --enable-fips --force-fips

This commit updates the test to use
process.config.variables.openssl_is_fips instead of common.hasFipsCrypto
as hasFipsCrypto only returns true if the OpenSSL library that is
shipped with node was configured with FIPS enabled.
