Yes.  Here's some documentation from the current development version;
the two mentioned scheme functions, however, are present in 2.20, too.

  Finding fonts

  In addition to any font already installed on the operating system,
  more fonts may be added to the ones detected by FontConfig (and thus
  available in LilyPond scores) by the following commands:

    #(ly:font-config-add-font "path/to/font-file")
    #(ly:font-config-add-directory "path/to/directory/")

  Both commands accept either absolute or relative paths, which makes
  it possible to compile a score on any system by simply distributing
  the relevant font files together with the LilyPond input files.

For your case it should be thus sufficient to add

  #(ly:font-config-add-directory ".")

at the top of your main `.ly` file (assuming that you call the
`lilypond` binary while being in this directory).
