TeXForm is intended for formatting Mathematica expressions
as TeX fragments. To export Mathematica graphics for inclusion
in TeX documents you should not use TeXForm. Instead export
the graphic as an encapsulated PostScript (eps) file and
include it as you would any other PostScript file in your
Tex document.

The details of how to export a Mathematica graphic as an eps 
file will vary depending exactly which version of Mathematica
you are using. Consult the Mathematica User's Guide for your 
version of Mathematica for more details.

I hope this helps.
