You are absolutely right that using the correct docs for my Lilypond version (2.8) works, namely:
mkdir outputs
lilypond-book --psfonts --output=outputs/ myarticle.lytex
cd outputs
latex myarticle.tex
dvips -o -h myarticle.psfonts -Ppdf myarticle.dvi
ps2pdf myarticle.ps

However, I have just seen Mats comment about 2.10, which seems to suggest that for a pdf the commands should be:
lilypond-book --pdf -o output=outputs/ myarticle.lytex
cd outputs
pdflatex myarticle.tex
dvips -o -h myarticle.psfonts -Ppdf myarticle.dvi
ps2pdf myarticle.ps
No! pdflatex will directly create a PDF file, so there's no
need for the dvips and ps2pdf commands. This is documented

completely is relevant also for version 2.10 and which
is significantly reworked and improved compared to the
manual for 2.10, you will find that the pdflatex alternative
is described as the main alternative, already in
