[pdftex] RSMoroma Font usage ?

I've been trying to get the RSMoroma font installed and working with 
pdftex, so far without much success, and would appreciate some assistance.

RSMoroma is a tengwar font, and I have the afm, tfm, pfb, ttf, vf, and a 
ursmoroma.fd files.

I have added a map file with the line

rsmoroma RSMoroma <rsmoroma.pfb

(I've also tried "rsmoroma <rsmoroma.pfb" and "rsmoroma <<rsmoroma.pfb").

This map file is being read by pdftex -- when I add a similar line to 
cm.map, I get a warning that there's a duplicate definition.

However, pdftex appears not to recognize this as a PS font.  The TeX output 
includes an attempt on the part of the installation to run MetaFont (which 
fails, as there is no mf source :-)

The test document is:


Les nombres 0--9 : \texttiw{0123456789}

Etoile : \texttiw{elen}

(which came with the font files). The main part of the interactive error is
(c:/usr/web2c/share/texmf/tex/latex/contrib/pxfonts/ot1pxr.fd) (./ursmoroma.fd)
