from the man-page:

       The one current great shortcoming of ps2pdf is that except
       for the fourteen built-in PDF fonts, it converts all fonts
       in  the  PostScript  file to bitmap fonts in the PDF file,
       and scrambles the character codes so that  the  output  is
       not searchable.  (Normally it produces 720dpi bitmaps, but
       you can change this using Ghostscript's  -r  option.)   We
       intend to mostly fix this by the end of 1998.

Perhaps you can try with Adobe Distiller if you really need good PDF
