Pressing Ctrl + Alt + t seems to do nothing on my Linux Mint 13 MATE.

How can I set this shortcut to launch a terminal window?

As a detail, it seems the terminal is mate-terminal rather than gnome-terminal.

You can just use Keyboard Shortcuts, available via Main Menu's Search ..

Just Add a new item... eg. named mate-terminal ... the command should be mate-terminal

Then click on the new item (which appears at the bottom of the list).. and type Control-Alt-t ...

All done...

If you have compiz installed, you can also use its Commands options, but the above method should still work.
