Hello, one more questions. Here it goes.

I have now created estimates for TE for each sector following Nick Cox's
suggestion. I would now like to compute TE for  each firm in a sector relative
to maximum TE in that sector in a particular year. 

I am not sure how to proceed, mainly due to the lack of understanding of

As I understand it, you are fitting a separate 
model for each sector, and want to pool the predictions. 

Here is one way to do that: 

levels sector, local(S) 
gen te = . 
foreach s of local S { 
	capture drop work 
	qui xtfrontier 
		logrgva time logwage logplnt if sector == `s', tvd 
	predict work if e(sample)  
	qui replace te = work if sector == `s'
