Okay, I'm officially confused now. Why is this sentence valid, where other sentences in this lesson are using "á" to express the same idea? For example, why isn't this sentence something like, "Tá éadaí á ceannach agam." ???

Because the others are incorrect. In that sense, it's passive. However, in some cases it's ambiguous (tá sé á dhúnadh).
