I don't know a single query that will match the combination  
requirement. Matched don't work across files, only on single files as  
far as I can see.

It isn't too hard to find all TeX created pdf files:

"'Content Creator' (probably in the 'Others…' dialog) contains tex"  
will find all pdf files made by (pdf)(e)TeX.

Hope this gets you started,
