NImbus Roman and Times Roman are described as visually identical. So I 
would suggest the following lines in pdftex.map as  pointers to a 
suitable slanted Times Roman:
ptmro8r NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".167 SlantFont TeXBase1Encoding 
ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc <utmr8a.pfb
ptmro8y NimbusRomNo9L-Regu ".167 SlantFont TeXnANSIEncoding 
ReEncodeFont" <texnansi.enc <utmr8a.pfb
