I am wondering if it is possible to make specific icons bigger on Mac OS X Leopard? Maybe using an apple script perhaps? By file type?

I haven't been able to find any information on line about it.

Since this functionality is not exposed through the UI, I doubt it is possible. Finder can align icons on a grid when the Meta key is held down, if icons were of varying sizes then it could not do this.

Thats a good point, thank you. I just liked how it previews images/pdfs, etc. So I would want to make those big to see them. Not a problem.
