xdv2pdf relies on "borrowing" dvips's configuration file to help it 
identify font files associated with .tfm-based fonts, and use the 
proper encodings. But apparently it isn't finding it on your system.

In Terminal, try

	kpsewhich -format "dvips config" psfonts.map

and see if it is found.... that should be equivalent (I think) to what 
xdv2pdf does internally to locate the file.

My guess is that your texmf.cnf is lacking an entry that is needed to 
find this file (perhaps it points to where the Fink teTeX used to be?). 
One approach might be to reinstall the TeX i-Package (and then XeTeX, 
which will be deleted by a reinstallation), if you can't identify the 
specific configuration item that needs to be updated.
