Equation Service can do this, but it depends somewhat on the 
application that is hosting the PDF image.  This is because Equation 
Service generates multiple versions of the typeset equation, TIFF and 
PDF being two that I know of.  The host application apparently has some 
flexibility in deciding which of the available formats to use.  For 
example, betas of OmniOutliner 3 would take the TIFF image and lose the 
ability to convert the image back to LaTeX source.  The folks at the 
OmniGroup changed OO3 to instead take the PDF image, so OO3 now plays 
nice with Equation Service.  (Other than the baseline issues discussed 
elsewhere in this thread.)
