ive obviously missed something, but why do we need les here when tous means all (ofthem)?
Il les a lus -- He read them.Il a lu tous les livres. -- He read all the books.Il les a tous lus. -- He read them all.
Let's look at this another way. Il les a lus -- He has read them. "les" being the direct object pronoun.
To add a bit more information -- Did he read them all or just some of them?
He actually read them all -- "Il les a tous lus"
Does this help?
