This seems to be a generic error in xfaces.c.  It tries to load a font without 
checking the type
of frame.  The type is tty, but it tries to load a font anyway, and eventually 
ends up in (font.c) font_pixel_size, which does:

#define FRAME_RES_Y(f)                                          \
  (eassert (FRAME_WINDOW_P (f)), FRAME_DISPLAY_INFO (f)->resy)

Now, FRAME_DISPLAY_INFO for a NS compiled Emacs is

#define FRAME_DISPLAY_INFO(f) ((f)->output_data.ns->display_info)

but the frame is not an NS frame, it is a tty frame, so bad things happen.
It is the same for X, but there it just happens to return a nonsense value, so 
the code continues without crashing, and eventually discovers that there are no 
font dirvers and the load font fails.

The code is in xfaces.c, Finternal_set_lisp_face_attribute, around line 3120 
where it calls
font_load_for_lface.

The code in question is not called if compiled for a tty (#ifdef:ed out), but 
it is called when the frame is a tty frame on a non-tty compiled Emacs.

I think these cases should be the same, i.e. font_load_for_lface not called for 
tty frames.
