Is there a reason why you do not use a ‘Frenched Score’?
Your PDF file is really not pleasant; a frenched score seems more
"natural" (logical) and would also give a better (and more correct) PDF
output, as well as what you want: a single (and correct) MIDI file,
without programming error.

  \layout {
    \context {
      \override VerticalAxisGroup #'remove-first = ##t

as explained in NR 1.6.2 Modifying single staves > Hiding staves

Of course in that case you would need to add a multimeasure rest of the
duration corresponding to the duration of the tenor solo part at the
beginning of every voice.  You can use

  $(mmrest-of-length tenorIMusic)

But if it is just a matter of MIDI in one file, I'd suggest you to use
a software permitting to edit and merge different MIDI files into one
single MIDI file.  LilyPond's priority is PDF, not MIDI file generation
and customization.

I'm not a MIDI specialist but such software should exist (maybe as
free software).  Use a search engine or other users could help.
