To add category images change

$collection = $tree->getCollection()
    ->addAttributeToSelect('description');
$tree->addCollectionData($collection, false, $parent);

To:

$collection = $tree->getCollection()
    ->addAttributeToSelect(array('description', 'image'));
$tree->addCollectionData($collection, false, $parent);

Edit:

For the category images are store in media/catalog/category folder, so you can use this:

$imageUrl = Mage::getBaseUrl(Mage_Core_Model_Store::URL_TYPE_MEDIA) . 'catalog/category/' . $node->getImage();
