Hm, I still don’t get it.
The  procedure you described is the one I have been following with 
Gentium. But I don’t get the expected results with Hoefler.
The following code will work fine with Lucida Grande but not with 

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode


\setromanfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Hoefler Text}
%\setromanfont[Mapping=tex-text]{Lucida Grande}

\textpolhook{o},  \textpolhook{O}, ǫ, Ǫ.
