I could print this window using my Printer A to create a .ps file, which I then passed through Adobe Distiller with appropriate job options to get the final pdf. But with TeXShop I don't know how to change the way the .ps file is created.

I don't think simpdftex can do anything but dvips->distiller or dvipdfm(x). I can try to create a latexmk engine that could do what you wish but I need detailed information about how `Printer A' is applied to the dvi file and how Adobe Distiller should be called from the command line too.

Good Luck,
