pdflatex -> ../lib/texmf/bin/i586-linux/pdflatex

As a result, none of the TeX/LaTeX related apps work.

That's only a symlink to a symlink, and you haven't checked if the target does exist.

/usr/bin/pdflatex -> ../share/texmf/teTeX/bin/i586-linux/pdflatex -> pdfetex

which should belong to package "tetex".
