The font utmr8a.pfb is I think a commercial Nimbus font, which is not 
included in teTeX, so the bad display of the PDF file is not surprising. 
I did a quick search in the directory 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/dvips/config for files calling this font. 
There are several, including pdftex.map (read by dvips according to your 
log file) which includes the lines:

ptmr8rn NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".82 ExtendFont TeXBase1Encoding 
ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc <utmr8a.pfb
ptmro8r NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".167 SlantFont TeXBase1Encoding 
ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc <utmr8a.pfb
ptmro8y NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".167 SlantFont TeXnANSIEncoding 
ReEncodeFont" <texnansi.enc <utmr8a.pfb
ptmrr8re NimbusRomNo9L-Regu "1.2 ExtendFont TeXBase1Encoding 
ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc <utmr8a.pfb
rptmro NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".167 SlantFont StandardEncoding ReEncodeFont" 
<8a.enc <utmr8a.pfb
rptmrre NimbusRomNo9L-Regu "1.2 ExtendFont StandardEncoding 
ReEncodeFont" <8a.enc <utmr8a.pfb
rptmrrn NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".82 ExtendFont StandardEncoding 
ReEncodeFont" <8a.enc <utmr8a.pfb
tio NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".167 SlantFont TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont" 
<texnansi.enc <utmr8a.pfb

I think the problem comes from tio (normally oblique - or slanted - 
Times). In pdftex.map you have for the LY1 Times metrics the lines:

tib Times-Bold "TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont" <texnansi.enc
tibi Times-BoldItalic "TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont" <texnansi.enc
tibo NimbusRomNo9L-Medi ".167 SlantFont TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont" 
<texnansi.enc <utmb8a.pfb
tii Times-Italic "TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont" <texnansi.enc
tio NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".167 SlantFont TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont" 
<texnansi.enc <utmr8a.pfb
tir Times-Roman "TeXnANSIEncoding ReEncodeFont" <texnansi.enc

This means that for italic, bold or normal characters the Times fonts 
are called, but for slanted characters the font NimbusRomNo9L-Regu (?= 
utmr8a.pfb) is called instead. So I think your problem is caused by the 
table of contents using slanted character shapes.

The file pdftex.map claims to be created by a script updmap in 
$TEXMFMAIN/dvips/config. So could these lines, calling for utmr8a.pfb in 
pdftex.map, be created by some problem during installation of teTeX 
(Gerben, are you listening?).

Hope this helps,
