In brief: Maybe

Lact intol is digestive issue, not allergy.
Less milk sugar in milk chocolate. High sugar and fat content slows down stomach emptying, slows down load of milk sugar (lactose) to small intestine, less likely to overload it. Whole milk better tolerated than skim; mixed meal better than milk alone; yogurt/kefir better than reg milk (bacteria digest some lactose); hard cheese better than e.g. Cott.
