the command works for me. I used the following steps (TextMate 2.0-beta.11.5, OS X 10.11.15):

1. Open TextMate
2. Create a new file (`⌘` + `N`)
3. Save the file as `test.tex` inside `~/Downloads` (where `~` is the location of your user directory)
4. Write down the word `temp` inside `test.tex` and hit `⇥`
5. TextMate opens a new window with the title “Insert LaTeX Template”
6. Hit `↩` to insert the first template `Article.tex` at the current position of the caret

The above steps work under my main account and also under a fresh Guest account (after I install the LaTeX bundle inside “Preferences”→“Bundles”). 

Do the steps above work for you? If not, do they work if you temporarily activate the Guest account (“System Preferences”→“User & Groups”→“Guest Account”), switch to it and install the LaTeX bundle?

Maybe the probleme is `ruby18`. Does the following work on your machine?

1. Open TextMate
2. Create a new file (`⌘` + `N`)
3. Insert the text `ruby18 -v` in the first line of the file and press `Ctrl` + `R`
4. TextMate inserts the text `ruby 1.8.7 (2012-02-08 patchlevel 358) [i686-darwin13.3.0]` into the second line of the current file
