teTeX-0.2 appeared in Aug. 1994 and it had LaTeX2e. TeX Live 1 was based
on teTeX-0.3.3 :-)

I guess that this versien does not yet have a workaround for that
"LaTeX sources are older than XY months" problem (which I have fixed
latex in 1996, long before MikTeX had the first work-around) :-)

So, if you actually want to use that old TeX Live 1, you might need
to replace
  initex latex.ltx </dev/null
  initex '\scrollmode\input latex.ltx'
in texfonfig.
