David,
There isn't a Metafont Oriya, but there is are several PS ones
distributed by

Lingua Language Services
63b Woodhead Road
Holmfirth
Huddersfield HD7 1PR
England.

TeX can use PS fonts.

Finally, if you can raise the money, it would be very worthwhile to
commission Yannis Haralambous <yannis at gat.univ-lille1.fr> to create an
Oriya-in-Metafont for you (and the world).  Yannis is creating a Sinhalese
Metafont for the Wellcome Institute right now: first proofs are gorgeous.
In due course it will be released at no charge for academic use.  Yannis is
also doing a Bengali at the moment, so while he is in "Indic mode" it would
be a very suitable time to commission him to make other related fonts.

Best wishes,

Dominik
