So last night, our party's wizard casted on himself true strike, so his next round's scorching ray would be a direct hit. He rolled on his round and rolled a natural 20. So It was a threat. My question is if the true strike counts towards beating critical confirmation ac. (Would his roll still be +20)?

Yes, because confirmation has the same modifiers as attack (all pluses and minuses).

As written in SRD: immediately make a critical roll—another attack roll with all the same modifiers as the attack roll you just made.
