Given your account is non-admin, you need a configuration which reads  
input from and writes output to your home directory. So:

- "sudo updmap-sys -H", which read from and writes to /usr/local/ 
texlive/, is out.

- "sudo updmap-sys", which reads from ~/Library/texmf/ and  
~/.texlive<year>/ and writes to /usr/local/texlive/, is out.

- updmap, which reads from ~/Library/texmf/ and ~/.texlive<year>/ and  
writes to ~/.texlive<year>/, gets in.

(Pete, please correct me if I'm wrong.)

So what I think you need is:

- Put lucida.map in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/lucida/.

- Run "updmap --enable Map lucida.map".

To be confirmed, as I'm not using a personal TeX setup (as opposed to  
system-wide) myself.

That said, I'm a bit surprised by your description: I would have  
thought customizing a software (as, in this case, adding support for  
the Lucida fonts) is precisely the thing you would do in the admin  
account, before returning to the non-admin account for daily work.  
Unless, of course, you want first to experiment and test things in  
your non-admin account, before installing them system-wide.
