No, now (starting from TeXLive-2007 I think) latex and pdflatex are  
both the same beast, pdftex working either in dvi mode or pdf mode,  
respectively, corresponding to the -output-format option. I don't  
remember exactly how that works, but I think latex is a symlink to  
pdflatex and the fact that you call it by the name "latex" enforces  
the option "-output-format dvi". And TeXShop's console will start with:

### This is /usr/texbin/simpdftex, Version 20070507
### /usr/texbin/latex test.tex
This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6)

Could you post a copy of the (whole) output in TeXShop's console  
window, to find out exactly what's happening?

Also, I can't see what you mean by "usepackage pdftex-options". Do you  
mean you're loading packages in the form \usepackage[options]{package}  
where the options are pdfTeX-specific?
