Delimiter for what? Field or row?
Field delimiter: set @s = 'bcp "'+ @SQL + '" queryout ' + @FilePath + ' -c -t ¦ -T'
Row terminator: set @s = 'bcp "'+ @SQL + '" queryout ' + @FilePath + ' -c -t, -T -r ¦'

Then is the first solution. You defined as comma so you just need to change it to pipe.

Note that the pipe character is a special character to the command interpreter. You need to escape it using the Circumflex character:
set @s = 'bcp "'+ @SQL + '" queryout ' + @FilePath + ' -c -t^| -T'
