The following should fix this for all of pdfTeX, dvips and dvipdfm:  
run in sequence, in Terminal:

     sudo updmap --setoption dvipsDownloadBase35 true
     sudo updmap --setoption pdftexDownloadBase14 true
     sudo updmap --setoption dvipdfmDownloadBase14 true

The values of these options are set when the TeX i-Package is  
installed, during the configuration process: at one point you're  
asked whether you want the "standard" PS font (Times, Helvetica,  
etc.) to be included in PDF output, the default answer being No.  
You're offered this option in Expert mode, I'm not sure it's visible  

Hope this helps,
