Move the all the font related files from the folders in your ~/Library/texmf/ tree to the corresponding folders in the /usr/local/texlive/texm-local/ tree (create those folders if necessary and you'll need your admin password to move them). Then remove them from your personal tree. Run
so that the TeX system ``knows'' they are in the new tree. Then run
sudo -H updmap-sys --syncwithtrees
sudo -H updmap-sys
although you may have to enable those maps you moved again using
sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map=mymap.map
where mymap.map is the particular map file and run it for each of those map files.
