You cannot change the name of the output file from within TeX.  If you
really want set the name you could do this by loading a dummy file
(that might be empty but must exist).

pdflatex '\def\filetype{thesis-s}\input{\filetype}\input{thesis}'

The empty files thesis-s.tex and thesis-p.tex must exist but all
the TeX stuff is in thesis.tex.

You could then use \ifthenelse in thesis.tex to find out whether
\filetype is thesis-s or thesis-p.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
