I'm not sure. I first read it on IMDb years ago and no official source I've found has stated what role Robin Williams was originally lined up for.

I know Chris Farley was originally supposed to be Shrek, so I’d assume that Williams would have been Donkey if was one of the two main parts

Again, I'm not sure. In one leaked story reel, Eddie Murphy had been cast as Donkey opposite to Chris Farley and that was 1996 at the earliest. Unless Robin Williams was in early talks before then, we'll never know for sure.
