TeX has nothing to do with the image files that it includes in a
document. It just reads the bounding box information from the eps
files, creates a box of these dimensions, provides a pointer to the
graphic file when we request TeX to include a graphic.

It is the previewer and printer that take care of rendering and
printing respectively, do the processing of graphic images. As such, I
guess, there is no scope for manipulating the color of images within a
TeX compilation.
