(Reuters) - Federal Reserve policymakers will probably wait until June before cutting interest rates, traders bet on Tuesday, after a government report showed consumer inflation ran higher than expected last month.    Traders of futures contracts tied to the Fed's policy rate pushed their expectations for an interest-rate cut deeper into the year after the Bureau of Labor Statistics report, which showed the consumer price index rose 3.1% in January from a year earlier, more than the 2.9% economists polled by Reuters had been expecting.
