I ran pdflatex on your sample file and got type 3 fonts. Then I added 


to the preamble and got type 1 fonts, even after adding equations. I 
then added the " \usepackage{pslatex}" to the preamble of the Ipe 
document properties dialog (edit menu) and regular text labels compiled 
fine, but with math symbols results were mixed.  Some symbols (\int) 
compiled ok, others (\sum) did not.
