I think the syntax is correct, but a binary mime type and
eol-style=native are obviously incompatible:

When I do like you did, I get the error (in a TSVN dialog box)
"File 'test.tex' has binary mime type property"
when I add a .tex file.

The file is added anyway, but the svn:eol-style=native is lost.

When I change the config file to
*.tex = svn:mime-type=text/plain;svn:eol-style=native
and add another .tex file everything works just fine, both properties
svn:mime-type and svn:eol-style get added to the file.

According to the section on svn:mime-type in the svn-book you definitely
want to assign a text mime-type to tex-files, since the possibility to
merge them line-based is necessary.

Since I am no expert in mime-types I can not tell if application/x-tex
being interpreted as a binary mime-type is a bug in subversion.
