If you used Gerben Wierda's i-installer for your instillation of tetex, then 
for sure, you can uninstall it via i-Installer. You should ave gotten 
already i-Installer with mactex, but if (somehow) you haven't, you can get 
it from Gerben's site:


I do not know how one would uninstall tetex which is not Gerben Wierda's. 
In any case, people on this list are competent (I'm on their way, just by 
having been in need of their advises :)
