How about just changing the keyboard shortcut in System Preferences?
More specifically, go to

System Preferences => Keyboard => Keyboard Shortcuts

Add a new "Application Shortcut" for Textmate: the menu is called
"Next Completion", so just throw that in as menu title, and add
whatever keyboard shortcut you're seeking. Only problem is finding an
accessible shortcut that isn't already taken.

Good luck,
