If you want to integrate it into the pdflatexmk engine (actually this will do it for all of the latexmk based engines --- if that's no good let me know) just add the line
$makeindex = "makeindex -s my.ist %O -o %D %S";
(on a separate line) where my.ist is the index style file you want to use to ~/Library/TeXShop/bin/latexmkrcedit. Note: from then on the my.ist file will always be used. Note that the my.ist file needs to be where TeX can find it; e.g., ~/Library/texmf/makeindex for personal .ist files---create that folder if necessary.
