The default of dvips (w32) is "-noomega" and
dvips (w32) has a switch -noomega0, namely,

dvips (Unix) == dvips -noomega0 (w32)
dvips -noomega (Unix) == dvips (w32)

Please try
dvips -noomega0 -p2 -l3 sample2e
odvips -p2 -l3 sample2e

PS: I don't understand why "dvips -p2 -l3 sample2e"
requires omega extension.
