Try to run in sequence:
updmap --disable mnt.map
updmap --enable Map mnt.map
Problem seems to be: you tried beforehand to enable mnt.map and it
didn't work (updmap failed to find mnt.map and hence couldn't add its
content inside psfonts.map and friends), but updmap.cfg has been
updated then (reference to mnt.map has been added to it); accordingly,
when you try to enable again mnt.map, updmap remarks that updmap.cfg
contains reference to mnt.map already, considers work has already been
done, and refuses to proceed further.
Just to clarify: when running "updmap --enable Map somefile.map":
- updmap.cfg is added the line Map filename.map
- updmap.cfg is read anew, if updated content differs from previous
content updmap proceeds further and if not aborts
- all the .map files referenced in updmap.cfg are looked for, read and
their content added inside psfonts.map, pdftex.map and dvipdfm.map
with the appropriate syntax

Those files pertains to an older obsolete deprecated install of teTeX.
Most likely, you haven't updated your locate database in a long time
and these files don't exist any longer. If they do, bad news, because
when running TeX some files are read from a TeXLive install and others
from a teTeX install, forming an inconsistent mix.
First step to take: open System Preferences > TeX Distribution and
make sure TeXLive-2007 is selected. Second step: navigate manually to /
usr/local (for example Cmd-Shift-G in Finder) and check whether
there's a teTeX directory there; if so, delete it (after saving all
parts you might have added yourself willingly).
udmap.cfg that should be used is /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-config/

Surely. pdfTeX has stopped using pdftex.cfg several years ago, this
config file is now replaced by
IIRC pdftex.cfg ceased to exist when teTeX changed from version 2 to
3. You seem to use a setup combining scattered pieces from teTeX 2
with TeXLive 2007, which is prone to problems. I'd advise erasing
completely, after saving from
all the pieces that you may have added yourself (like all the Minion-
Pro related files), then reinstalling from scractch.
That said, I'm not familiar with user-specific installations (not
