There are outline versions of the CM fonts, but some publications and
organizations insist on specific fonts.

Which might mean a problem with something entirely unrelated to 
the fonts (e.g., wrong papersize, problems with links, etc.).

It is very hard to know what is going on without more details.  If the
problem is related to fonts, then it is useful to keep track of exactly
which fonts are being used. When dvips runs, it lists the font files: 

$ dvips -P pdf story.dvi

were used.  If you can get the resulting pdf file to a computer running
*nix, then it is easy to check which fonts are actually used in a pdf

$ pdffonts story.pdf
name                                 type         emb sub uni object ID
------------------------------------ ------------ --- --- --- ---------
KGIMMU+CMBX10                        Type 1       yes yes no      10  0
NSPLPE+CMSL10                        Type 1       yes yes no      13  0
ZHKQYB+CMR10                         Type 1       yes yes no      16  0

When you view the file with acroread, you can also get a list of the
fonts <Alt+Ctl+F>.  Unfortunately, this isn't in a form that is easy to
paste into email, but you should see something like: 

Original Font   Type   Used Font               Type
CMBX10         Type 1  Custom Embedded Subset Type 1
CMBSL10        Type 1  Custom Embedded Subset Type 1
CMR10          Type 1  Custom Embedded Subset Type 1
