deskUNPDF PDF Converter :Convert and edit the contents of PDF documents with deskUNPDF. Easily and quickly convert PDF’s into Word (.doc), Open Office (.odt), Excel (.xls), HTML, and many more.

PDF Converter 1.1 : Open Automator and select the PDF icon you will see PDF Converter. You can combine with other actions to integrate a complete task and save as a workflow. The PDF Converter includes a workflow file. After you install it in a proper location, you then have the ability to use Contextual Menu to convert files to PDF format

There is a tutorial for converting .doc files using automator.

Also, there is a fairly new Automator Action that converts text files to PDF.
