Don't use CM, switch to LM, i.e. Latin Modern. The i-Installer can  
create OpenType fonts that are put into /Library/Fonts. There are  
also Mac versions of Utiopia/Fourier (fourier-mac-v15-12-02-2005.sit).

I think you would need to change the MAP file fragments: usually they  
have "<font8a.pfb" which stands for partial download. Changing < to  
<< should force complete download. (Leaving < or << away would *not*  
embed/download the font.)

The easier way is to use TrueType instead of PostScript – I think I  
didn't see yet pdfTeX embed only a part of the TrueType font file ...
