There's nothing particular in XeTeX about Type-1 fonts, so I suppose
they must be used in the old way, i.e. with .tfm files, etc.
However, the topic of fonts is rather murky to me (one of the reasons I
really favor XeTeX), and a more authoritative voice should be heard.
Note that a nice introduction to XeTeX is Will Robertson's XeTeX
Reference Guide, where you'll find what I've said and much more
(including dealing with font features).
