The table format that is returned by fontforge cannot be used
immediately as a return table from define_font, it needs to be
converted first, that is why your test didn't work out.

There is (or at least used to be) a wiki page about TrueType/OpenType 
loading on the http://luatex.bluwiki.com , and that should help you
get started.

Best wishes,
