I just noticed that the directory noted above is for 2011, not 2012. Did you really install MacTeX-2012 and is it selected in the TeX Distribution Preference Pane in system Preferences?

Also, you probably ran

sudo updmap

under TeX Live 2011 at some time and that's why that 2011 directory is not accessible by updmap.

Good Luck,
