No, they're certainly not. TeX Live is completely innocent, it's more of a dependency (although I recently found that dblatex won't build as mactex variant with TeX Live 2019 in MacPorts), it only has to be there or otherwise you would not need AUCTeX. The problem is likely in ELPA. There might be some dependency of another package from AUCTeX. Another option could be that the registry DB of ELPA is corrupt and cannot delete AUCTeX. And ELPA itself is just an add-on to Aquamacs. Maybe it helps to remove this one, ELPA – after you recorded which packages are installed right now.
