Ok, step 4 is equivalent to `ATH (return)' and `ATA (return)'. The `Y',
`E', and `S' are probably silently discarded by your modem.

I have no idea why and ATDT only works after preceding it with an ATH or
an ATA.

This link refers to a configuration file directive for some application
called `tip', and is not encouraging you to type `AT hayes (return)' at
your modem.

Certainly, you can't expect the automated script to work until you work
out the correct sequence of commands needed by hand. The only thing that
I might suggest is to reset the modem back to it's factory profile using
`AT&F (return)'.
