I have the *.ttf files installed in wine. Do I need to install directx from the flight simulator cd into wine? Do I need a specific font file or do I need set the path to the font file?

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
winetricks corefonts

This will install the corefonts used by MS into the proper place.  You
will have to accept the Microsoft licenses.
