Well luatex would certainly not spring to my mind when thinking
about PSTricks problems. PSTricks needs a postscript interpreter
like dvips or ghostscript and so normally one used the tex->dvi->ps
route. While luatex can generate a dvi: as soon as you use system
fonts dvips will not be able to process this dvi.
