Yes, teTeX 2.0.2 contains only .mf sources and latex support files.
However it shouldn't be a problem to generate .tfm files on the fly.

Actually updmap for Windows cannot add a line to updmap.cfg, you
should do that manually. Then you can
updmap --disable dstroke.map
and again
updmap --enable MixedMap=dstroke.map
Please observe the notation (updmap --help)

It should work if you have complete .mf sources in 
and updated ls-R
If you have only texmf/fonts/type1/public/doublestroke/*.pfb files
and GhostScript properly installed, mktexpk should call gsftopk, then
gs have to generate "modeles" bitmaps for windvi display.
I've just checked both cases and it works.
