I don't know how things are with MikTeX but with recent versions of TeX Live the graphicx package includes epstopdf package and pdflatex has the ability to automatically do a conversion file.eps->file-eps-converted-to.pdf and then include that .pdf file even without using -shell-escape (it uses a highly restricted form of epstopdf without -shell-escape). Whether this can happen is configurable so MikTeX may have it turned off. Oh... I believe you must have Ghostscript installed to use epstopdf.

Good Luck,
