We discussed this a few months ago and it is not possible to support
LaTeX in Texinfo files. If writing equations you need to stick to
plain TeX. A small number of LaTeX commands, such as \frac, can be
provided as a convenience, but proper LaTeX compatibility should be
considered a complete impossibility.
