Although the variable is named with a -command suffix, it's doc string
accurately describes its value as a program name.  That is, it is
invoked via call-process (actually, call-process-region) not via a
shell-command.  So I think what Lowell needs is

(setq lpr-command "ssh"
      lpr-switches '("host" "print")
      lpr-add-switches nil)
