I don't think so. Scribus supports *.pfa, *,pfb (Postscript Type1), 
*ttf (Truetype) and *.otf fonts, no bitmap fonts though.
Scribus 1.3 also supports Apple *.dfont and *.ttfc (True Type 

For Scribus 1.2 these fonts must lie in the toplevel of the additional 
font directory, Scribus 1.3 looks also into subdirs.
In Scribus you can use "scribus -fi" to get console output about font
