I need to know if I have to apply a oil base primer (on the already primed shingles from the factory) before I apply a solid color stain?

No you don't but be advised that Stain will only penetrate surfaces that are "natural and unfinished" so any primer will block the Stain from being absorbed 100% as it should…

You should start with unprimed cedar…

You could Paint it however… choose a finish color that appears similar to the Stain that you wanted to use… use Acrylic Paint… Sherwin Williams A-100 use a flat finish…
