Can anyone recommend software that will allow me to give my users the ability to select dynamic parameters in order to filter data that is merged on to a word document?

No need to buy anything, there is already something built into Word. I haven't use it for years, and it was in Word 2003 or before, but when you started a Mail Merge, a wizard appeared that let you connect to different data sources, including Access or SQL Server, choose a database, select a table or view, and specify the sort order and a filter, with AND and OR if needed

It looks like MS Word mail merge capabilities might suit you. But if you want more control over how to shape and retrieve the data then you will have to implement data retrieval in your application and use for mail merge itself a toolkit like this.
