Yes, because your printers are a bunch of clueless
individuals living in the past...

In the stone age of PDF & printing (early 1990s!), there were
issues with TrueType fonts. They were addressed with Acrobat 2 and
Postscript 2 - back around 1995 or so.

So if your printer doesn't allow TrueType, they are probably
still using the same equipment they had back then.

I would RUN (not walk!) to find a new printer!!!!

You can't just replace the TTF version with the T1 version.
You will need to go back to the original authoring environment and
remake the PDF.
