This is how to look at it, the shim is moving the hinge further down, it is allowing the hinge to "close" more, thus lowering the hood. But it is affecting ONLY the back of the hood, it isn't doing a thing to the front. Lowing the front is ALL about lowing the latch and hood bumpers at the corners.
