Generally there is no need to manually install bundles (that are listed
in Preferences → Bundles), on the contrary; TextMate keeps things
updated, and if you start to manually install things, you will eclipse
automatic updates (and might soon end up with a stale bundle).

Looking at the LaTeX bundle, this error seems to be because it fails to
obtain your document’s file name by running:
kpsewhich -progname="pdflatex" «document»
Here «document» should be your document unless you have set
TM_LATEX_MASTER (or are perhaps using some %iTeX directive), which is
why the bundle suggests it might be an issue with TM_LATEX_MASTER.
But it could probably also be an issue with kpsewhich.
Above you mention both TeXLive 2009 and 2013. I think we’ve had users
install one, then update it, and afterward the LaTeX environment was
broken for TextMate.

You do not. This is only if you have multiple .tex files and want to
designate one of them the “master”, i.e. the one to typeset,
regardless of what file is the current one.

In a terminal run:
And also try to run:
kpsewhich -progname="pdflatex" /path/to/document.tex
