Start a X session for your new user and then use gsettings to edit
dconf for the old user.

sudo -Hu olduser dbus-launch gsettings [...]

I logged in as user1 (which has sudo privilege) at a console, and ran
sudo adduser user2 sudo
then rebooted and logged in to the GUI as user2 .

I then  (as user2) opened a GUI terminal and ran
sudo -Hu user1 dbus-launch gsettings list-schemas | grep org.mate |
xargs -n 1 gsettings reset-recursively
as advised.

It returned "No protocol" then reset the panel settings for user2.

So, the panels are still broken for user1, and, now, the panels
settings for user2 are returned to the default settings.

Doesn't Mate provide a shortcut to open an app finder or a right click
menu to launch a terminal as user1? There's no way to launch a terminal as user1?

If you only can open a terminal as user2, then as user2 run

sudo -u user1 HOME=/home/user1 dbus-launch gsettings list-schemas | grep org.mate | xargs -n 1 gsettings reset-recursively

after that run

HOME=/home/user2

If you run a X session as user1, did you try Ctrl+Alt+F2 to run
gsettings?
