That is to say, could you please give a more detailed report?
It works here: The attached new mapfile (in my original post) lived in a 
ConTeXt-accessible path (in this case, just the testfile's directory), 
and contained entries directly cut-and-paste from my pdftex_ndl14.map.

Some commentary on the testfile:

%D Berry doesn't work here because it's not available with 8r:
%D The adobekb typescript loads 8r-base, so we have to
%D overwrite the font embedding entries by loading this after:
%D The current way of triggering the 'pos' combination:
\usetypescript[postscript][8r]    % 'pos' is deprecated
%D Since this triggers the "slanted" variant, there will be *one*
%D NimbusRoman font embedded. The rest is left up to the viewer:
Of correct font.
