You can use TrueType fonts with Lout.  Lout itself only needs an AFM
file: You can generate an AFM file from a TrueType font using ttf2afm
(should be available from CTAN; it's also included in the teTeX
distribution).  For printing to a (resonably recent) PostScript
printer you can wrap the TrueType font as a Type 42 font.  The
simplest way for doing this (as far as I know) is Christophe
Labouisse's to42.ps, which works with Ghostscript. Unfortunately,
Christophe's site is under construction, but I could send you the
program if you want it.

Using this method, your TrueType fonts look and behave just like
regular Type 1 fonts.
