You need to produce the outline fonts using mftrace/potrace
in order to use outline fonts in your pdf.

If you want to only use bitmap fonts (not recommended) then you
need to set an appropriate mode for metafont to generate the fonts
at the correct resolution (2602 is too large).

I have not used this package so my information may not be correct.

Does "itrans" support tamil and pdflatex? If so you could try the
fonts from itrans-fonts.
