Would it be possible to convert them at installation time?
There would be two essential options:
1. creation at installation time:
   - possibly only one package for all ming fonts (the tool)
   - less packages on the mirrors
2. building a ming font package for the wanted TTF font packages

I'd go for option one with a small util that:
1. installs the ttf font package e.g. via apt
2. converts to ming fonts
3. optionally uninstalls the ttf font package
