I would suggest using the VMWare converter on your guest OS

Is there a VMWare converter for the Mac?

You would not use it on the Mac you would install the converter on the guest Windows OS and execute it from there to perform the conversion.

Keepin mind that you can only install vCenter converter on a Windows or Linux operating systems. It's not available for Apple OSes.

I think the author wants to convert an exisitng vm that is running on Fusion.

If he installs the vmware converter into the Windows os  that is running on Fusion, he will be able to move the vm to workstation 6.5

Very true nappy_d! That's a good workaround when using Fusion.

Are you saying that if I install the converter in the VM that is in Fusion, the convert can "convert" the vm that it is running in?

yes 100%!  Make sure you have something such as an external USB drive that you can mount from the VM to save the converted image.
