for the most part the TFTD ufopaedia uses the basescape palette, but that can alter depending on the article type_id

I took a screenshot of the color palette:



I didn't find a palette that matches it but I can confirm it doesn't match Battlescape, Geoscape, Basescape, Interception, or UFOPedia-Aircraft. I haven't checked the palette used for UFOPedia alien research. One would assume it matches that palette but if it does not, then that would explain your problem.

That can surely be done in some programs, but if you convert to a new palette in mtpaint, it leaves every color in the same position on the palette and thus screws up the image.

What do you even want to say by this? How is this relevant to anything?
Use programs that can do the job, don't use program that can't.

try converting to RGB first, then convert to paletted mode? maybe copy the entire image and paste it into one with a good palette? use falko's mod tools?
