You need to recreate the content of the directory  
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/mathtime/, by:

- downloading LaTeX's mathtime support files from CTAN, for example  

- opening mathtime.ins and making sure the following line is not  
commented out:


and this other is indeed commented out:


- latexing mathtime.ins,

- put the generated .sty and .fd files in  
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/latex/mathtime/ and run "sudo  
texhash" (without the quotes) in Terminal, or simply put these files in  
~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/mathtime/ (no need to run texhash then).

You're done!

That's mentioned, albeit without much detail, as point 2c) in  

Explanation: the default LaTeX support files for MathTime are now, in  
TL 2004, generated for the basic font set only, not including the bold  
math fonts etc. This is fine by me, as I only own MathTime 1.1, not  
MathTime Plus, but inconvenient for people like you who own both sets.  
It's really a pity that the switch between MathTime basic and Plus must  
be applied at the time the .fd and .sty files are created, instead of  
being a style option like [expert] for Lucida fonts.
