You can't

because a TeX font has a non standard encoding that fit not
to Adobes encoding, More over the cm fonts have only 127 characters
while Adobe standard has some more glyphs.

For TrueTyep fonts

Show[Graphics[Text["Hallo",{0,0},TextStyle->{FontFamily->"Web Dings"}]]]

will work but you can't export this int PostScript.
