Lotus Notes cannot, by default, import a PDF into a Notes Rich Text field. Notes 8.5.x can do so if you edit the notes.ini of the workstation client.

Add the following line to your notes.ini:

EDITIMPnn=Adobe PDF,0,_IW4W,,.PDF,,2,

Note: replace the "nn" above with the number of the last EDITIMPnn currently there.
