I believe the proper way would be to get a sound module, they usually can be gotten fairly inexpensively for a cathode kit, I'm sure they have led kits as well. I've also seen people hook lights up inline with speaker wires coming off of an amp and having mixed results.

Whatever the results, sooner or latter a blown audio output is certain. You can't possibly match the ohm impedance to do this safely. There are alot of LED controllers out there like this one @ http://www.oznium.com/cathode-music



Just google LED Controllers if you want more.

They would all blink at the same time and rate. If you already have a "Kit" that comes with a Controller that doesn't have music beat mode, your not going to be able to add it. What you have is what you have. There'* no "magical interface" to accommodate a prewired, preprogrammed kit.
