If you scan in pages into Word then I think that the scan makes it an image file and not a text file, that could be your problem. If you scan and then run an OCR programme so that you create a text file in Word then you should have something you can output to a pdf.

You need this

or something similar - scanned pages become images, usually in .jpg format!

If you have a photo editing programme it may enable you to "Save as" a PDF. Photoshop certainly does.
