Omit the second field "Helvetica" or make it invalid
  phvr8r "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc <hv______.pfb
  phvr8r HelveticaFoo "TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc <hv______.pfb

There is some code in pdfTeX which does not embed the font, if the psname
matches one of the Base14:

        for (i = 0; i < 14; i++)
            if (strcmp(basefont_names[i], fm_ptr->ps_name) == 0)

How about disabling this?
