In this sentence:

君は選ばれたのだ 私の退屈を埋めるための欠片の1つ

Does the particle に work in the same way as として? Is it the same as 私の退屈を埋めるための欠片の1つとして ?

Thanks for the answer!

Yes, に works like English "as", a role marker. "You were chosen as one of the pieces...".

Is it the same as 私の退屈を埋めるための欠片の1つとして?

Yes, at least in your case, に is interchangeable with として. (Of course this is not always true because both として and に have many other functions.)
