Ok, without seeing it I'm 90% sure the haze is from the epoxy grout. I have run into this problem with several tile installers on commercial restaurants. Most tile installers are not use to working with epoxy grout and cover more sf then they should before cleaning the tile and that is what leaves the haze. The only way to get rid of it is to use muriatic acid.

if the tile was not cleaned well after the grout was applied and left the film or the cloude or the haze on the tile for over 24 hrs and more ,the haze from the grout will eat the finish on the tile surfece and it very hard to get red of it.
but you can try to buy tile dressing and apply it very thin and uniform,with the right applicater.
one more thing ,the best tile cleaner is 2 oz vineger per i galon water.

good luck
