For normal TFM files tex4ht uses more-or-less-manually-generated files
with mappings between TFM slots and Unicode values. It would be
*waaaaay* easier to convince tex4ht to use UTF-8 encoding directly (if
you know how to patch tex4ht). Just having "fat TFM" won't help you at

A few years ago this could have been a trivial request with a
"trivial" and quick solution.
