(You probably mean ttf2pt1..., or the shell script ttf2type1...) Another utility is available: ttftotype42. This converts TTF to PostScript, by using a wrapper. I've read that dvips can use PostScript Type 42 fonts. So you could create your own MAP file fragment, best saved in the /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local tree, using these wrapped-in font files.

So disable the unnecessary MAP file fragments related to Tengwar, make your MAP file fragment in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local known (maketexlsr/texhash, you could additionally invoke 'sudo updmap-sys --syncwithtrees'), enable you MAP file fragment – and run simpdftex again.
