Where does kpsewhich report that psfonts.map is really located?
According to the output you showed, xdv2pdf is looking in the
following places, and their subdirectories:
(where the "!!" prefix indicates that it won't really search the
disk, it will rely on the ls-R file). These don't look like Fink
paths, they look like typical TeX Live paths; with Fink, I'd expect
paths beginning /sw/...
So this makes me wonder if xdv2pdf is not finding your Fink teTeX
copy of texmf.cnf, but perhaps a different version of the file.
Either you need to adjust the paths in the .cnf file xdv2pdf uses, or
you need a copy (or symlink) to psfonts.map in one of the places
where it is already searching.
(I'm afraid I don't use Fink's TeX, so I'm not sure of the precise
details of how it is set up. The best answer would be for someone who
understands Fink to provide an actual package, but I'm not in a
position to do that for now.)
