I would try running something like:

        $ lilypond -V --ps --pdf

It will show the command it's using to convert the .ps file to PDF,

-dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -r1200 -sDEVICE=pdfwrite 
-sOutputFile=./test.pdf -c.setpdfwrite

And, you'll be left with the original .ps file.

So then you could try that gs command, perhaps even adding -dDEBUG
to see what's going on.
