Hi Peter,

This segment of the console file shows that it is picking up the font map file pdftex.map from your personal folder, not the system folder, which means you must have run updmap at some time after installing mactex 2009 and before trying  sudo updmap-sys. I'd suggest deleting the personal map files if you don't intend to make use of anything but those in the system.

In Terminal,

rm /Users/.texxlive2009/texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/*.map
rm /Users/.texxlive2009/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvips/updmap/*.map
rm /Users/.texxlive2009/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvipdfm/updmap/*.map

After that, LaTeX should pick up the system version of pdftex.map. It's not good news about getting permission denied errors while running sudo [-H] updmap-sys, but that's another issue.
