I tried something similar, but using ToExpression[...,"TeXForm"], 
likewise removing the trailing "\\" from the original.

(I was surprised that Mathematica just ignored the "&", which is 
evidently in the original expression because that expression is part of 
a larger LaTeX construct such as a \begin{align}...\end{align).

However, I was unable to see how to let Mathematica itself convert the 
single backslashes, which of course are interpreted as escape symbols, 
to the needed double-backslashes.  The obvious thing,

   expr = "\ln{H}^{*} &=  {X}_{1} {\beta}_{1}  + {\alpha}_{1}lnE+ \
{\varepsilon}_{1}";

   expr/. "\"->"\\"

does not work, of course.
