I have not tried yet but I think that it is easy.

Yes, but you have to install MathTime fonts of Mac OS version, too.
Illustrator can not handle fonts embedded in EPS or PDF files.  I
think that it is not so smart to install both PFB format fonts for TeX
and Mac OS fonts for Illustrator.  But I don't have any other ways.

By the way, if you want to use aonther Times base math package,
TXFONTS, with Illustrator, you also install Mac OS version TXFONTS.  I
converted PFB fonts in TXFONTS to Mac OS fonts with Fontographer but
they have different PostScript names from those of the original ones
because the original TXFONTS have PostScript names which does not
follow Adobe PostScript naming convention.  If you converted the
original fonts as they have, you would have some confliciton of font
names.  So, I changed the PostScript names.
