- I created the .bash_profile following your instructions:

.... PhpMate r11069 running PHP 5.2.6 (cli) (/usr/bin/php)
I guess you need to configure this settings in your $HOME/.MacOSX/ environment.plist instead. I think TextMate doesn't use a shell or at least doesn't load your $HOME/.bash_profile file to run those commands.
If the file $HOME/.MacOSX/environment.plist doesn't exist on your home, you can execute the following commands on your Terminal:
mkdir ~/.MacOSX touch ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist open ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist
The last command will launch Property List Editor. If you don't have a line with "PATH" in there, you need to add another item (by clicking "Add Item") of String type, and add the same thing as you've seen on your .bash_profile. If it already exists, you can only put the location of your MAMP php bin directory (which in my case is / Applications/MAMP/bin).
Remember that applications launched by you outside Terminal usually don't read your ~/.bash_profile settings file.
You can find more information about environment.plist on this article, and even a Python application to copy all your environment variables to your environment.plist to keep them in sync.
By the way, it seems you configured wrongly your .bash_profile: you've used /Applications/MAMP/conf instead of /Applications/MAMP/bin.
Hope this helps!
