By default, TeX uses its own fonts, and doesn't have access to the font which are available in the Mac OS X GUI.

You'll want to use xe(la)tex: http://mactex-wiki.tug.org/wiki/index.php/Fonts

In this case:

\setsansfont{Gill Sans}
\textsf{This is in Gill Sans, a sans serif font}

Typeset that w/ xelatex (should be compatible w/ lualatex as well) and you should get the result which you're after.
