the virtual font nxlmi (a tfm,vf pair) is part of the distribution, so it is possible that there is something wrong with its installation.
Things to try in a Terminal window:
Just to be sure the lsr databases are updated,
which I expect will return nothing,
find /usr/local/texlive//texmf-local -name nxlmi.tfm
may return some permission denied error messages, but, if newts was properly installed, should return something like
/usr/local/texlive//texmf-local/fonts/tfm/public/ntx/nxlmi.tfm (the /ntx/ may be /newtx/.)
If not, the tfm is in the wrong place and the entire newts distribution should be reinstalled.
