I believe that is the fault of the distiller. Unfortunately, the
supplied simpdftex doesn't accept arguments for the distiller (-
dAutoRotatePages=/None). Someone may have a jury-rigged simpdfptex
that may have that option added.
An alternative is to use latexmk and the latexmk engine and simply
changing the line
$ps2pdf = 'ps2pdf14 %O %S %D';
in ~/Library/TeXShop/bin/latexmkrc (~ is your HOME directory) to
$ps2pdf = 'ps2pdf14 -dAutoRotatePages=\/None %O %S %D';
which should fix things up. If that doesn't do the job don't escape
the /; i.e., replace \/ by / alone.
If you haven't enabled the latexmk engines in a newer TeXShop you can
find the engines and instructions for enabling and using them in ~/
