zsh reads .zprofile.

Setting the variables is not enough. You have to export them, as in:

export PATH

or even in one line:

export PATH=/usr/texbin:$PATH

This is however unnecessary, because zsh reads /etc/zshenv which uses the /usr/libexec/path_helper (see Herb's post).
MANPATH is set by looking at PATH, so it's better not to set it.
