you mean the inverse of TeXForm[] ?
For what ? A TeXpert && Mathematica guru && MathLink expert
has a TeX frontend, that translate a TeXNotebook
(that is a TeX file with some Mathematica Input/Output 
environments) and send the input cells to a kernel
and insert the output into the final TeX file ...

The most of the remaining work like creating hyperlinks
to references and figures is done my LaTeX and pdfLaTeX,
with help of CTAN and some macros one generate almost every
layout *and* I have more than 20 books about TeX/LaTeX 
(including Don Knuths excelent manuals) but I have not
a single book about the Mathematica Frontend.

The way is not to teach TeX to the frontend, the way is
to teach TeX a bit Mathematica.

And a TeXpert will never switch from his beloved TeX
to the Frontend and it's typesetting -- that's why
he is a TeXpert.
