Have you checked the font itself in a regular text editor to see if
the advance on the fraktur hyphen glyph is not somehow subtly
different from the average hyphen. If the bounding is off on that then
lilypond will look off too.

Well, lilypond never uses the dash glyph for hyphenation of lyrics.
Instead of a hyphen it puts a /draw_round_box into the output postscript

I used "\override LyricHyphen #'stencil = #ly:text-interface::print" to
tell lilypond to really generate a hyphen glyph instead of a centered
round_box, but that hyphen will be printed at the start of the preceding
syllable and thus needs a manual x-offset override if nobody knows
a better way to handle the problem;-(
