Here's a fontinst script that generates the required files in T1 encoding.


% !TEX TS-program = tex
\input fontinst.sty



This produces t1ztm.fd plus ztmrc8t.vpl, ztmbc8t.vpl, ptmrc8r.pl, ptmbc8r.pl on which you run vptovf or pltotf. Make a file ztm.map with contents

ptmrc8r Times-RomanSC " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <[8r.enc <ptmrc8a.pfb
ptmbc8r Times-BoldSC " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <[8r.enc <ptmbc8a.pfb

Then it's just a matter of copying the contents of t1ztm.fd, changing the family name {ztm} as necessary, to the fd files you plan to use. I would not find it worth the effort because my crummy old eyes can't see any difference between the Adobe Times fonts at ordinary sizes and the URW versions (including small caps) which are already installed in TeXLive.
