You could try winetricks allfonts.

If that doesn't fix it, it could be a registry problem.
Because most installers set up registry entries that the
application will need in order to work properly, you
ordinarily need to install the application into wine, just
as you would install it on Windows, rather than copying
its .exe and .dll files from a Windows installation.
Another possible approach is to export the application's
entries -- NOT the entire registry -- from the Windows
installation, and import them into the Wine registry,
using the corresponding registry editors.
