Let's take them one at a time:

Word->PS: you don't need Cygwin tools, just print to file on a portable
PostScript printer driver (Adobe LaserWriter is a good one that I usually
use -- make sure the PostScript driver options say "optimize for
portability").  Not Cygwin-specific (or -related) at all.

HTML->PS: same as above, but use your favorite browser to print.

PDF->PS: two ways: 1) Use Acrobat Reader to print to file (as above); or
2) (the Cygwin way) use the pdf2ps script that comes with ghostscript.

TeX->PS: need you ask?  LaTeX! :-)
