One should be able to get around the font issue using psfrag, which 
lets one replace text in the PostScript file with LaTeX code (using the 
Computer Modern fonts).  Unfortunately, psfrag only works (I think) 
using the latex->dvi->dvips toolchain.  What you might try is the 
following:

1. create a one-page LaTeX file with no page numbers that includes the 
Mathematica graphic,

2. use psfrag to replace the text in the PostScript graphic,

3. convert foo.dvi to foo.eps using dvips -E -Ppdf foo.dvi  -o

4. convert the eps to pdf using epstopdf.

Once you've done all that, you'll have a nice PDF file with computer 
modern fonts instead of the Mathematica fonts.
