The full Adobe Acrobat package (not the free Reader) include PDF-Maker, which hooks into IE and MS Office and lets you create PDF files from documents. As a free alternative, there's also PDFCreator.

You could also use OpenOffice, which can open Office files and create PDFs. OO also has a Java API, so you could do this programmatically from Java code.
