There comes a point text size is so small even if there was a font that went down that size you're not going to be able to read it anyway. In cases like that, rare, but as you see they do happen.. Write out the text (I'm talking Photoshop here, so if you're using something else, I can't help), Rasterize the text layer, Free Transform the layer and resize until it meets desired text size needed then position into place. You won't be able to read it. You wouldn't be able to read it even if there was a font that size (they do have micro-fonts but they're awful) anyway but now you have a correct representation of the text that would be there in a individual pixel blur. :)
