I send you an example that on my system (Centos 7) shows the problem.
newfile2.pdf is included bt newfile1.lyx and the text displays correctly

I get about what Scott gets (possibly because I'm on Mint, which is
derived from Ubuntu).
On my system, the conversion process for the image is PDF -> EPS -> PNG.
That last step takes you from vector fonts to an image. I notice your
document is displaying the image at 150% of original size, which is
going to introduce some blurring.
You might try the following experiment. Close the document if it is
open, go to Tools -> Preferences ... -> File Handling -> Converters, and
find the EPS -> PNG entry (which is likely to be "convert $$i $$o").
Assuming your entry matches mine, uncheck the "Enabled" box for
Converter File Cache (otherwise you'll just be looking at a cached copy
of the image, no matter what you do), then change the converter entry to
"convert -density 300 -units pixelsperinch $$i $$o" and click Modify
followed by Apply. Close the dialog, reopen the document, and fix the
display size of the image (it likely will have gotten bigger -- I had to
go from 150% to 50%). See if that improves readability.
