I had the same request from one user at the lab. I managed to tell LaTeX
how to use the Mathematica Postscript fonts. For this I used a package
called Mathematica (The Mathematica Virtual Font Package from Jens-Peer
Kusla). At this time I cannot remenber where I picked up this package.
This work can be done manually by providing font-metrics TFM files from
the AFM of Mathematica and modifying  the psconfig file as well as
several enviropnment variables to tell LaTeX, Xdvi and dvips where to
find the fonts.

Then I wrote a note for users to tell them how to declare the
Mathematica fonts in their TeX file (because this is the responsability
of the englobing document to declare the fonts used in EPS file). This
notice is currently in french and I am not sure to have time to
translate it before my holidays. Anyway I can send the french  version
on request.
