For anyone interested, after posting this same query on the iTunes discussion forum, I received the following response from "B-rock", which cleared my problem completely.
And welcome to Apple Discussions!
I would start by trashing your iPod's Photo cache as described in this Apple support document.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 24, 2010 4:35 PM (in response to NottiCaldo)Exact same issue, now trying a restore. Also, I think this started happening after I ran cleanMyMac.
Yup deleting the ipod photo cache worked for me to!

Currently Being ModeratedSep 29, 2010 11:21 AM (in response to NottiCaldo)This worked for me, too. Using an +iPhone 4+, +iTunes 10+ and +iPhoto 8.1.2+. Without even opening iPhoto, I ran iTunes, synced and it "replaced" the photos on my iPhone with the new ones and you could watch the status window tell you how many photos it was optimizing. It left the Camera Roll alone.
This happened to me after replacing my iPhone 4 after an accident and restoring from the previous iPhone's backup.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 29, 2010 6:39 PM (in response to iPhone developer)Worked for me too - iPhone 4 34GB. Worked earlier, now, for some reason, didn't. Deleted the iPod Photo Cache folder and it's back to syncing like before. Thanks!iPhone 4, iPhone OS 3.1.3

1. go to home folder in finder
2. open pictures folder
3. right click on iphoto library and click on show package contents
4. Find "ipod photo cache" file and drag to desktop

6. Reopen itunes and sync ipad
7. The ipod photo cache rebuilds itself

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 28, 2011 7:47 AM (in response to NottiCaldo)You can also just go into iTunes, uncheck the option to synch photos, complete a device synch (if prompted, agree to delete the photos being removed), re-select the option to synch photos, and synch the device again.iPhone, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 7, 2011 12:33 PM (in response to ReeveYouwer)Deleting the iPod Photo Cache did not work for me. But removing photo sync and letting it delete the photos on my iPhone and then reenabling it worked.MacPro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
