The mom instructions specify ttf2pt1 for the conversion from
TrueType to Type1.  I have on occasion had difficulty with it
myself; I notice it's been dropped from some of the major distros.
Werner is quite right to recommend fontforge.  And yes, the momdocs
need to be revised.

Deri James has been putting a lot of work into integrating the mom
macros with pdf.tmac and the gropdf device.  I'm waiting till that
project is complete, whence I'll be updating contrib/mom, including
the documentation.
