try this

tell application "BBEdit"
     save active document of text window 1
     set texdatei to file of active document of text window 1
end tell

tell application "TeXShop"
     open texdatei

     latex document of window 1
end tell

as far as I can see, BBEdit's support for TeX is currently 
mostly the syntax colouring but I've found them interested (but 
not expert) in adding stuff for TeX. Eg they just implemented 
folding for \paragraph and \subparagraph (as they had for 
chapter etc) when I sent them a detailed report.
