I'm not sure if I understand the request, but with RR you can do this:

>> require 'rr'
=> true
>> extend RR::Adapters::RRMethods
=> main
>> foo = Object.new
=> #<Object:0x101664bd8>
>> stub(foo).bar { raise NoMethodError }
=> #<RR::DoubleDefinitions::DoubleDefinition:0x10165ce60>
>> foo.bar
NoMethodError: NoMethodError

Although like I said, not sure if I understood Lille's request.
