Yes it can. It's reading the size as declared in the Document Setup
--- change that to match the graphic and you'll then get things to
match up.

Unfortunately you can't script Document Setup (at least I've not been
able to using AI CS2), so you have to adjust every graphic by hand.
Once you've done this though, you can change your pdftex setup so
that it pulls in the .ai files (if you save your .ai files as .pdf
compatible).
