DvA> AGaramondPro-Regular

DvA> instead of embedding the .otf

DvA> What should I do differently?

looks like your .map is not read at all by pdftex.

If it is read, try to rename .otf to .ttf, I beg that pdftex determines
the type of handling from the filename extension, and that OTF is just a
special case of TTF.
