If the generated content is not xml-ized, I strongly suggest *NOT* to
use Cocoon for it.

Anyway, either you create your xml-ized version of latex (???) or come
up with FO or with your own markup and then transform it to FO via XSLT
or a custom transformer.

But, as a suggestion, don't even try to pass around TEX files in the
cocoon SAX based pipelines... yes, it's possible, but it's the worst
hack I have never heard of..
