If you know that the documents are all valid to the full TEI DTD then
you are in a much strnger position than just trying to infer a DTD from
a set of instances. You can, essentially, just use a simple xpath
expression (or just perl, probably) to get a list of element and
attribute names used in your instances then take the TEI DTD and just
delete any references to elements not used in your instances. You may
have a few small manual changes to make the resulting grammar
deterministic, but basically you are done.

Alternatively perhaps you could just get the TEI Pizza chef to bake you a
small DTD
