Latin Modern fonts are not created by tracing bitmaps. CM-Super is.  
LM fonts are fonts created from Metafont sources through the  
Metatype1 system. Probably this is a Metafont subset that allows  
conversion to Type1 and OpenType, but I do not know the details.

CM-Super has been created using Autotrace.
