How about opening Terminal, going to the folder where your .engine  
files are (for example type "cd " without the quotes in Terminal, and  
drag the folder icon from the Finder onto the Terminal window, which  
will paste the path to that folder), and then using chmod:

	chmod a+x *.engine

This should make the engine files executables (in Unix sense).

For example, in my case:

Portable-de-Bruno:~/Library/TeXShop/Engines brunovoisin$ ls -l
total 32
-rwxr-xr-x   1 brunovoi  staff  104 Jan 20 22:12 XeLaTeX +  
-rwxr-xr-x   1 brunovoi  staff   72 Jan 20 22:14 XeLaTeX.engine
-rwxr-xr-x   1 brunovoi  staff  102 Jan 20 22:14 XeTeX +  
-rwxr-xr-x   1 brunovoi  staff   69 Jan 20 22:13 XeTeX.engine

where XeLaTeX + xdvipdfmx.engine contains:

set path= ($path /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin)
xelatex -output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E" "$1"
