Actually, it did not exactly work…
The icons were restored while I was in safe boot mode. After rebooting, they were gone. I noticed that when I save a new file, its icon briefly appears as TS, then reverts to a generic text file icon. In the info window, however, I see the TS icon.

I choose TeXShop as the default app for latex files and Change All in the Info window, but as soon as I hit return it revers to TeX.midimporter. My latex files do open in TS by default but their icon is generic. Also, under Open With I see two TeXShop applications.
