Do you mean xterm from X11? If so, does Terminal.app show the same behavior ---that is, do you have to sudo also for latex to find article.cls?
Anyway, here is my output from xterm:
bash-3.2$ which latex
bash-3.2$ kpsewhich article.cls
bash-3.2$ which dvips

I don't know what to say ---here is my output
drwxr-xr-x 10 root wheel 340 Nov 10 20:59 ./
drwxr-xr-x 12 root wheel 408 Nov 3 00:53 ../
drwxr-xr-x 22 root wheel 748 May 13 2010 2009/
drwxr-xr-x 23 root wheel 782 Jan 9 23:37 2010/
drwxr-xr-x 10 root wheel 340 Jan 9 23:37 texmf-local/
Do you, by any chance, have a ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist?

??? dvips is installed by TeXLive ---and hence MacTeX (see above).
I still think the TeX on Mac OS mailing list is an appropriate place to help you with this if you're interested.
