Override Field Value in Drupal Views Attachment using hook_views_pre_render()

Overriding views data can typically be accomplished using the commonly used hook_preprocess_views_view(&$vars) hook. However, I ran into a situation where I was unable to override field data using the preprocess hook. While building a view to show a list of products within certain categories, I added an attachment view which rendered the taxonomy name and description. The client wanted to taxonomy name on one page to be different than the actual taxonomy name.
