 From the AMS web site

These fonts are available in Macintosh and PFB (binary Type 1) outline 
formats. Users requiring the fonts in PFA (ASCII Type 1) form should 
convert them with the aid of one of the following tools, available from 
the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN):

     * fonts/utilities/ps2mf/pfb2pfa
     * fonts/utilities/ps2pk/ps2pk15/misc/pfb2pfa
     * systems/msdos/4alltex/diskp1/pfb2pfa.zip

The fonts have exactly the same metrics as the bitmap versions of the 
fonts generated by METAFONT. Therefore, the standard TFM files 
(available from CTAN in fonts/cm/tfm and fonts/amsfonts/tfm) should be 
used for TeX applications.
