Hopefully I have some pdf files backed up on my Time Machine. The thing is that I forget what I named them! Is there anyway that I can make Time Machine display every single .pdf file that I have ever back up on to it?

Searching for .pdf in the Time Machine window should do the trick. Alternatively (and more thoroguhly) you can do a recursive ls listing with *.pdf in the Time Machine image via Terminal
