I'm not sure what you mean by "character maps". Can you clarify that?
But it may not be relevant; PowerPoint can only use fonts that are embedded in a presentation or installed in Windows. While the font files needn't be installed in the usual Windows Fonts directory, there needs to be at least a shortcut there, and w/o permission to install fonts, I don't think you're going to be able to get there.
Can you copy the presentation to another PC where you have permission to install fonts, save it with fonts embedded, then put it back on the server?
