You can't use Windows- (or other TTF-/OTF-Formats) directly with
pdfLaTeX. You'll have to migrate them to virtual Fonts, have to write
the necessary .fd-Files, etc.etc. - which is at all not a trivial process.
You should consider to use XeTeX or LuaTeX, instead of pdfLaTeX, where
the usage of TTF-/OTF-Fonts (beside some other advanteges) is directly
included via the fontspec-package.
