Or, alternatively, as a sneer from someone who spoke the 2nd Age language, and knew that "Aiel" meant "dedicated". By adding "so-called" to it, he could question their dedication to Rand.
In hindsight, it was most likely both, with Taim probably not really understanding what the Aiel had originally been dedicated to, and thus not understanding why the Forsaken considered them degenerate.

Bah, so many will look for the most innocent words and deeds and paint them a Darkfriend.

No doubt this Taim fellow simply picked up the vernacular while on his . . . travels.
