Considering that Batik 1.0beta2 is an earlier version there might be some
sort of problem with it.
The exception (I think) is due to getting a null PathIterator from the clip

FOP's batik.jar is the build from batik 1.0 with the target all-jar. There
is also a minor difference with the rasterizer.Main class.
I'm hoping this will be added to batik sometime.

If I understand your question, yes you can use it in a similar way.
Depending on what you want to do it may be best to use the PDFTranscoder,
as it does a few extra things.
