Unfortunately, I think ROS Indigo on macOS with Homebrew is a dead-end. Basically Homebrew has dropped support for Qt4 and despite trying to come up with all the dependencies they removed:

https://github.com/ros/homebrew-deps/pull/31

I failed to get that path to work out. At this point I think we're only going to be able to support a Qt5/Gazebo7/ROS Kinetic setup on macOS.

See:@Mike Purvis basically came to the same conclusion:

You issue is that the qt4 dependencies that ROS Indigo needs are no longer available. I removed them in this pull request because the Homebrew formula they mapped to were no longer available or supported:
