Michael, (and Daniel) your original example posted works fine using 
the Lilypond.engine from the link posted by Tobias.

(Assuming Lilypond is installed in /Applications)


Save the file in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines as Lilypond-LaTeX.engine 
without the .txt extension.

Open a terminal window and type:

chmod +x ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Lilypond-LaTeX.engine

Quit out of TeXShop (if it's running) and open it up again.

Open your file, and in the pull-down menu that allows you to choose 
the engine, you should see Lilypond-LaTeX.  Choose that and then 
click on the typeset button.  Your document should appear properly.

If you put

%%!TEX TS-program = Lilypond-Latex

as the first line of your file, TeXShop will choose the engine automatically.
