Most likely because the default behavior is to append the extra graphics extension to the list. You can add the file extension to the file name in the \includegraphics command. 

You might get it to work automatically if you create an epstopdf.cfg file which contains the line


and place it into ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/config/ (you may have to create at least part of this train of folders) and see if that works.

Good Luck,
