I had quite a few cases of similar problems when trying to preview 
<file>.pdf from within emacs with TeXShop. In all those cases, the 
<file>.tex had dvips dependences, i.e. I used simpdftex latex (latex + 
dvips + ps2pdf). It would typeset ok, but trying to View the <file>.pdf 
with "open %o" ("open -a /Applications/TeXShop.app %s") only would launch 
TeXShop without <file>.pdf displayed.

It got it somehow solved by opening <file>.tex in TeXShop, running
Typeset (Tex + Ghostscript) which went ok; and then, mysteriously the 
problem disappeared from emacs.

I also could not trace the problem: May be some fonts got set up via 
TeXShop. I am curious if you try this too: Typeset the file in TeXShop
