Are the pfb files correctly installed? Try

kpsewhich MinionPro-Regular.pfb

if it works, the only problem I can think of is with the map files. Did you use
updmap-sys --enable-map MinionPro.map ? Did it work?

Btw, you shouldn't worry about the mf files. Those are metafont sources for
bitmap fonts. When a font isn't found, mktexpk tries to build them from a mf
file, guessing the name from the name of the font. It has nothing to do with the
real problem here: once the Type1 version will be found correctly, mktexpk won't
be invoked any more.
