I created a new project and selected 16:9 (1.2). I made a test image of 720 x 480 but when imported to the project it is not wide enough.

I imported a test image of 864 x 480 and it does fill the entire picture area, properly scaled.

When I export this project and eventually burn it to DVD, I want to fill my HDTV screen exactly, without stretching.

If I continue to use source images that are 864 x 480, will they appear stretched on the TV, even though they look good on the computer screen?

Before Photoshop had PAR options you would create graphics at 864x480(wide), than scale down in the project (using Distort/Transform, not Motion scaling). So, it's a solid process. :)
If you are using PS for graphics, I think since CS, you can choose 1.2 PAR in your new document settings - this would eliminate your 'not wide enough' issue.
Also, in Premiere, once your graphic is in the Project window you can right-click on the file and Interpret Footage... as 1.2 PAR. This will snap your Square 720x480 to Wide 720x480.
