Doing a bit of "reverse engineering", namely inspecting type-buy.tex  
to see in which form ConTeXt is expecting to find the fonts, here's a  
hack to add Lucida support for ConTeXt. It's a hack, namely it's not  
necessarily identical to what you would obtain from texfont. For  
example I called a map file math-bh-lucida.map, but I've no idea  
whether ConTeXt is expecting a specific name for this map file.  
Similarly, I've used the metrics created by fontinst for LaTeX (such  
as hlhr8r.tfm); I'm not certain texfont would create exactly the same  

(1) Put the attached map files where your existing Lucida map files  
(lucida.map, lucidabr-o.map and lumath-o.map in my case) are located.  
I'll assume in the following you're using a system-wide install, so  
that this location is /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/map/dvips/ 
lucida. The adaptation to per-user setup is straightforward (remove  
sudo and sudo -H in the following, suppress the calls of mktexlsr,  
replace updmap-sys by updmap, and replace /usr/local/texlive/texmf- 
local by ~/Library/texmf).

Then run in Terminal:

sudo mktexlsr
sudo -H updmap-sys --nomkmap --enable Map texnansi-bh-lucida.map
sudo -H updmap-sys --nomkmap --enable Map ec-bh-lucida.map
sudo -H updmap-sys --nomkmap --enable Map 8r-bh-lucida.map
sudo -H updmap-sys --nomkmap --enable Map math-bh-lucida.map
sudo -H updmap-sys

(2) cd to the directory where your existing Lucida tfm files are  
located, namely /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/tfm/bh/lucida for  
a system-wide setup. Then run in Terminal (you can just paste all the  
lines in the Terminal window in one go, it will execute all the  
instructions in sequence):

You're done! For me, after doing all that, your corrected example file  
processes fine:

Hello world.

and similarly when replacing texnansi in the second line by either ec  
or 8r.

It's possible there are typos in the attached files and in these  
instructions, I didn't double-check everything.
