Your sample pdf is created with specifying bitmap fonts but without embedding them. Such pdf files are common in China, especially on some online periodical websites. It seems they use pdf solution provided by a copmany named "Founder". It's quite reasonable that the pdf file is not readable on iLiad because there is no GB2312 bitmap font on your iLiad. Other pdf files using outline font should be working without any problem.
Before investigating into the problem, I have some conjecture:
1. It's not the problem of poppler-data.
2. A Chinese ttf with embedded bitmap font is required.
3. Maybe the problem can be solved by modifying config data of fontconfig in dir "/etc/fonts/conf.d".

You can do some experiments on a Linux desktop. If you can read this pdf file on a Linux desktop, then it should be possible for iLiad to read it.
