There is no way to do this with just VBscript.  Do you have a PDF creation software on your computer, like Adobe Acrobat Pro, etc?  You will need some utility to create the PDF file.

VeryPDF makes many excellent PDF tools:

One of them is Text To PDF Converter (free for  non-commercial purpose):
http://www.verypdf.com/txt2pdf/help.htm

It has a command line interface, so any programming/scripting language that can make a command line call is able to use it. Also, it does not require Adobe Acrobat (or Adobe Reader). Here's the download link for it:
