ConvertLead failed. First exception on row 0; first error: UNAVAILABLE_RECORDTYPE_EXCEPTION, Unable to find default record type

While doing a custom conversion, my Users are facing this error messages "ConvertLead failed. First exception on row 0; first error: UNAVAILABLE_RECORDTYPE_EXCEPTION, Unable to find default record type". The default record type for their profile is different than the recpord type needed for the conversion. I added a Permission Set to add the Assigned Record Type (there is no way I can add a default record type through a Permission Set).
The Lead conversion process has an existing Account (so no new Account to create) and also an existing Contact to map.
What can be done to let the Users Convert this Lead through the custom process?
