The following statement for your init file would be a way to do the

(eval-after-load "tex"
  '(TeX-add-style-hook "beamer" (lambda () (TeX-PDF-mode 1))))

That would be another way.  You could use

%%% TeX-PDF-mode: t

But I'd prefer the option with the style hook because there might be
people with whom you might share such a file and who may have other
preferences handling it.

You should be able to do this in the `lambda' expression shown above.
