If there are no results found when a dashboard is rendered instead of having a "NO RESULTS FOUND" message in the dashboard chart he would like to show the outline of the graph/chart with nothing plotted. Is this possible?

In version 4.1, there is no easy way to suppress the "no results" messaging, as it is built into the default charting modules. The charting engine itself will also not render an empty dataset. The only solution that comes to mind is to use the advanced XML to insert a condition switcher that would detect the empty result state and display a chart of a dummy dataset -- which doesn't seem to be worth all the trouble.
