There's no PDF writer that I know of, and I doubt there's much enthusiasm for creating one as part of Solr. ResponseWriters are pluggable so this would certainly be possible.
At root, in a response writer you just have a map of key/value pairs (it's a little more complicated than that, but not much) that you can do whatever you want with, either on Solr or on a SolrJ client. Not much help I know...
