While I'd love to see LilyPond being able to do that, i don't think we
are ready to start such a project as a part of LilyPond. Importing
music from pdf is a compplicated process and i suppose it would take
much effort to create a working solution, effort that i'd prefer being
spent on LilyPond itself.
However, there are some programs that can do this and can save files
to musicxml, which can be imported into LilyPond. You may want to give
them a try.
