It seems that you haven't read the documentation about `height':

      height              :: The height is the vertical distance
                             between two consecutive baselines,
                             expressed in font units.  It is always
                             positive.  Only relevant for scalable

With other words, it doesn't give the maximum size of a letter but the
distance between to text lines, normally larger than the largest
character.  You probably want to use the `ascender' and `descender'
fields of FT_Size_Metrics.
