Are you afraid o him, personally ? Or afraid of making a mess of your new and important job ? Is he more critical and unpleasant about whatver errors he discovers, than the usual bos ? As A says, discuss this with HR, and maybe some extra training could help you to become more confident. Maybe you'd be happier ( discuss this with HR ) in a slightly more junior position or simply with a different boss ? It may be that seeing a shrink for asessment would help, as if you have a degree of anxiety disorder, some medication ( of the sort also used for depression ) or some types o counselling such as CBT, could help greatly to help you mlearn to relax and feel more confident. The more anxious you get, the more mistakes you will make, and the more anxious you will get. But that nasty circle can be broken.
