In a real TeX distribution

	kpsewhich -progname=xelatex -show-path=map | tr : '\n' | sort

would show where XeLaTeX searches for files *.map ...

Could be the output of kpsewhich is incorrect because in non-XeTeX  
these files have to do with font encoding and therefore the emitted  
path names contain "texmf/fonts/map/xelatex" – obviously a bug in  
XeTeX that it misuses a standard file name extension. You might try  
to reflect the path name "/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/misc/ 
xetex/fontmapping/tex-text.map" into your private area, if MiKTeX  
supports this concept.

As mentioned earlier, only as long as the PostScript instead of the  
OpenType fonts are used you need this extra "map" file.
