I don't know anything about using {listings} along with [utf8] 
{inputenc}, but in a quick test, it seems to work to use XeTeX to do  
something similar....

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex

\setromanfont{Times Roman}

This runs without error messages; as I'm not sure what the {listings}  
package is meant to do, I can't vouch for the correctness of the  
output. It seems to be using the "roman" (body text) typeface with  
monospaced characters, but perhaps that's the intent.
