exec-path is useless here, since pdflatex is called through a shell.
Use PATH.

>From INSTALL.windows:

     If the configuration script failed to find all required programs,
     make sure that these programs are in your system path and add
     directories containing the programs to the `PATH' environment
     variable if necessary.  Here is how to do that in W2000/XP:

       1. On the desktop, right click "My Computer" and select
          properties.

       2. Click on "Advanced" in the "System Properties" window.

       3. Select "Environment Variables".

       4. Select "path" in "System Variables" and click "edit".  Move
          to the front in the line (this might require scrolling) and
          add the missing path including drive letter, ended with a
          semicolon.
