Solr can index PDFs and subsequently search them; it can not convert PDFs to any other format (nor can it do that for any other format - that's just not what Solr does). But PDFs in general are not amenable to format conversion.

Parsing & conversion of a PDF file to plain text / user defined format depends on its configuration. Solr does follow this mechanism before indexing it , try this link to for further details, http://www.lucidimagination.com/search/?q=Can++the+PDF+file+be++parsed+and+converted
