Did you check the permissions of the specific folder?
(right-click on the folder -> properties -> security tab)

When you mention "user can view all folders under a certain project besides one", do you mean he can't see the folder in the Source Control Explorer, or on the file system?
If he can't see the file on the file system, just force TFS to get the folder (Get Specific Version -> chekbox "Overwrite all files even if the local version matches the specific version").

If the force get latest did not work , Please make sure he has not chosen to cloak the folder in visual studio source control explorer
Cloak ignores the cloaked items during get operations, it makes sense the folder was deleted while cloaked, so all subsequent gets do not work.

That is what I had the user try first ... to uncloak the folder but that is not the case.  I checking with user to see what the results are with the "Get Latest Version"

These are the steps that were taken to solve issue:

1. Added the folder to the project manually (Add Items to Folder)
2. Then made Undo changes and after it TFS Source Control offered to get latest version from the server
