Thanks for supplying the command to input TrueType fonts in plots. Well I think it is a serious shortcoming of Mathematica that the TrueType fonts that can be applied to plots are not included in exported eps-files. Concering the cm fonts there exists an encoding T1 that is extended compared to the standard encoding OT1 (\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}). Now I know that the package psfrag allows to replace "tags" in plots by LaTeX code which in turn makes use of the cm fonts in LaTeX documents. More information can be found in psfrag.ps which is available from CTAN (e.g. ftp.dante.de/tex-archive).
