You *really* shouldn't install directx9 in the wine prefix; you need Wine's built-in Direct3D libraries for the game to work right. I suggest doing:
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_bttf winetricks vcrun2005 d3dx9
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_bttf wine ~/Downloads/bttf_101_setup.exe
When winecfg runs, go to the Audio tab, click "OK" when it says no audio driver is setup and it's picking defaults, and (probably) go into the Graphics tab and set it to run in a virtual desktop (1024x768 is a good size). It runs just fine for me.
Edit: And if that prefix already exists, remove it first, then try doing the above.
Edit 2: And when the installer runs, make sure to say "No" when it asks if you want it to download and run the DirectX updater.
