Does it help to add, in TeXShop's Preferences > Engine > TeX + dvips +  
distiller > LaTeX, the option

--distiller ps2pdf14


simpdftex latex --maxpfb

By default the distiller called by TeXShop is ps2pdf, a symlink to  
ps2pdf13, returning PDF 1.3 output, which is Acrobat 4-and-later  
compatible. The above option should tell TeXShop to call ps2pdf14,  
returning PDF 1.4 output, which is Acrobat 5-and-later compatible.

Hope this works,
