if you're using luatex with type 1 fonts, take a look at the mkiv 
typescripts; you don't need the encodings any more as we're unicode and 
type one fonts are also mapped onto unicode (you only need afm files and 
pfb files, no tfm is used)

i'm not sure why you get 15pt if not asked for but simplifying the 
typescripts might help sorting it out

(alternatively use the now built-in selectfont mechanism)
