The instance of mtxrun that TeXShop finds is entirely down to path settings and/or TexShop preferences settings (in its 'engine' files) and nothing to do with the security permissions.

Regarding the security permissions there is something else to check: go to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy tab -> Full Disk Access.
Make sure 'TeXShop.app' and 'Terminal.app' are both in the list.

If that still doesn't work then there is one more thing but it will be a PITA. :-(

And that is to install Xcode and the Xcode developer tools. This then gives you another Privacy entry in the left hand list called "Developer Tools" and, above the apps list on the right, the description reads "Allow the apps below to run software locally that does not meet the system's security policy." Add Terminal.app here.
