Ken No you cannot upload PDFs for eBooks. I successfully uploaded a docx. However I still found no way to make my trial eBook free. (I took your free file Ken and made it a docx and successfully uploaded it, still there was no way to make it free that I could see) The payee page is so complicated but I managed fine for the print books I made after the update. I will contact Lulu again and if they say it's no longer possible to make a free eBook, I'll take bizzley's advice and make an epub for folk to download for free.
