Please, accept my apologies, if CC-ing this to the TeX on Mac OS X 
Mailing List is not in its policy.

Since you say that pdflatex works, but not latex, within both TeXShop and 
Emacs, and also asked about beamer problems, I'm thinking that you might 
have tried the latex command with a beamer file. beamer files do not get 
properly get typeset with the latex command, only with pdflatex.

People on the TeX on Mac  OS X list explained this very clearly: in some 
emails around the same email that I've already referred to. (If you can't 
find it, then I will.)

And, if my memory does not betray me somehow, I recall time when, with 
Gerben's tetex, from emacs (it seems to me, also from texshop), latex ran 
ok on some beamer files, i.e. at least some. I am pretty sure, because 
that surprised me (after I had accidentally forgotten to use pdflatex 
instead of latex on a bemaer file, and then realized that). If I am right 
(and if you had that working too), perhaps Gerben is the only one who 
knows what he did at some point with tetex, for that to work.
