The following works for me:

  <match target="scan">
     <test name="family" compare="eq">
        <string>Nimbus Sans L</string>
     <test name="width" compare="eq">
     <edit name="family" mode="assign">
       <string>Nimbus Sans L Condensed</string>

Nimbus Sans L urw fonts (unmodified) with width=75 (condensed) are
re-assigned the family name Nimbus Sans L Condensed and are then
selected by the css font-family: Nimbus Sans L Condensed.

On Fedora:

% fc-list "Nimbus Sans L Condensed": file style
/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/n019043l.pfb: :style=Regular Condensed
/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/n019044l.pfb: :style=Bold Condensed
/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/n019064l.pfb: :style=Bold Condensed Italic
/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/n019063l.pfb: :style=Regular Condensed Italic
