The openstreetmap-carto style uses a large number of different fonts to cover characters outside of the Latin-1 range. Check if you have installed them all (you'll see warnings in your log file about missing fonts). A simple cure is installing the "unifont" TrueType font which will likely offer at least some usable symbol for every character.
