AFAIK if you install TeX Live via the MacTeX installer the fonts in TEXMFLOCAL will not be automatically included in the global map file. That's not a problem with succeeding updates since tlmgr will run the equivalent of `sudo updmap-sys` as part of the update, if needed. But on the initial install I don't believe the MacTeX post install runs it.

Good Luck,
