You definitely have tlmgr from TL 2008, but it's installed in /usr/local/texlive/2009.  I have no idea how this could happen.  I'd suggest

cd /usr/local
sudo rm -rf texlive

to remove your current install and any previous ones, then reinstall via MacTeX.  You could also check `ls -l /usr/texbin` to make sure it's really a symlink.
