Org uses system defaults for following hyperlinks. Thus, you should be
able to change the default by adding the following line to your
~/.mailcap file:

application/pdf; /usr/bin/evince %s

If you'd prefer not to tinker with system-wide settings, you can specify
evince just for org links by customizing the variable org-file-apps.
Simply type M-x customize-variable [RET] org-file-apps [RET]
