This no proof. It just shows that a particular MAP file fragment has been added. Give as a proof that any of your TTF file is listed in psfonts.map, the MAP file dvips reads!

Then you must have used a patched version of dvips! Dvips is an old programme and never delopped an understanding of the TrueType font format. It uses PostScript and bitmapped font formats (PK format).

Why are using the intermediate DVI output format?
