You'll want to process the file with LaTeX+Ghostscript. Choose that  
in the Typeset Menu of TeXShop or put the line

%%!TEX TS-program = latex

as the first line in the .tex file.

For LaTeXiT you might try putting together a special script where you  
process with `simpdftex latex` (latex->dvips->ps2pdf) but I haven't  
tried that.

Good Luck,
