The xdv2pdf driver (the default used by the TL2007 release of xetex  
on OS X) doesn't support this. Try using the xdvipdfmx driver  
instead, by enabling the XeLaTeX-xdvipdfmx engine in TeXShop or  
specifying it on the command line:

   xelatex -output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E" myfile.tex

This should support setting PDF info; at least it works for me with  
the latest development versions.
