Math fonts are not available in 'ec' encoding, you have to use 'default'
and why do you use the tfm files for Utopia, the afm files are enough.

Here is my version:

\starttypescript [serif] [utopia]
     \definefontsynonym [Serif]           [Utopia-Regular]
     \definefontsynonym [SerifItalic]     [Utopia-Italic]
     \definefontsynonym [SerifBold]       [Utopia-Bold]
     \definefontsynonym [SerifBoldItalic] [Utopia-BoldItalic]

\starttypescript [serif] [utopia]
     \definefontsynonym [Utopia-Regular]    [file:putr8a]   
     \definefontsynonym [Utopia-Italic]     [file:putri8a]  
     \definefontsynonym [Utopia-Bold]       [file:putb8a]   
     \definefontsynonym [Utopia-BoldItalic] [file:putbi8a]  

\starttypescript [math] [fourier] [name]
     \definefontsynonym [MathRoman]     [Utopia-Regular]
     \definefontsynonym [MathItalic]    [futmii]
     \definefontsynonym [MathSymbol]    [futsy]
     \definefontsynonym [MathExtension] [fourier-mex]

\starttypescript [fourier,utopia]
     \definetypeface [\typescriptone] [rm] [serif] [utopia]  [default]
     \definetypeface [\typescriptone] [ss] [sans]  [modern]  [default]  
     \definetypeface [\typescriptone] [tt] [mono]  [modern]  [default]  
     \definetypeface [\typescriptone] [mm] [math]  [fourier] [default]
