a) you can't teach Mathematica to use the PostScript versions
   of Computer Modern. Computer Modern has a complete different 
b) you refer to the Berry names of the fonts and these names are
   not used by any other system than TeX.
   Mathematica use the true font names i.e. "Times-Bold" instead of
c) if you have something like the Adobe Type manager you can
   install the Type1 fonts on you operating system and
   the fonts can be used directly. On unix systems you may
   intall the type 1 fonts for your X11 environment and use
   the fonts
d) You can do just the opposite, and use the Mathematica fonts
   with TeX
e) you may use the times.sty package (best with MathTime) to get
   the same base font in TeX and hopefully nobody will see that
   you have a Mathematica alpha in your axes labels
