What should work is changing "pdftexDownloadBase14 false" to  
"pdftexDownloadBase14 true" in updmap.cfg and then running updmap as  
root (sudo updmap). Alternatively, you can add the fonts later with  
GhostScript by running

gs -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=out.pdf -c "<< / 
NeverEmbed [false /Times-Roman /Times-Bold /Courier-Bold] >>  
setdistillerparams" -f in.pdf

where in.pdf is the name of your document and out.pdf is the name of  
the output file which will contain the fonts.

Good luck,
