Use Evaluate.

Plot[Table[Normal[Series[Sin[x], {x, 0, i}]], {i, 5}] // Evaluate, {x, -15,

But generally it is better to do extensive 'data processing' outside of a
plot statement and make certain it is what you want, rather than cram it all
into a plot statement.

 I'm having this problem. I want to plot a number of maclaurin
polynomials and I want to do it like this:
Plot[Table[Normal[Series[Sin[x], {x, 0, i}]], {i, 5}], {x, -15, 15}]
This gives me a bunch of error messages. However, if I first print the
Table[Normal[Series[Sin[x], {x, 0, i}]], {i, 5}]
and cut and pase this into the plot command, everything works just as I
want it. How do I get past the cut and paste step?
