Don't know whether it would work for lily, but on my system (gentoo
linux) I just copied all my Windows fonts into a "Windows" directory I
created under /usr/share/fonts.

One reboot later, all those windows fonts were available to my linux

So try creating a lily directory under fonts, and copy them into that.
So long as lily is aware of system fonts, it should find them.
