So here in Texas, state law exempts divisions with each part greater than 5 acres with all parts having access and no public improvements required from needing a plat.

It doesn’t say public access, so does a private easement count as access? Is this just the “Thou shall not create landlocked tracts” rule? Or by access does it mean direct access (frontage)?

I'm not a Texas planner, but I would say that an easement would count. At least in the eyes of the courts.
