When I view "convert.tex" I get a blank page so it is hard to say but
it may well not.

If the fonts are (1) symbol fonts and (2) type 1, try the instructions
in 'The Font Installation Guide' for symbol fonts (linked from the
instructions you were using). That will likely work better.

If (1) but not (2) you need to adapt the strategy because pdftex cannot
use truetype fonts except via virtual fonts (as far as I can figure
out, anyway).
