What I am about to say is embarrasssingly obvious to Terminal users,
so I apologize if I am wasting your time, but this can be done
quickly.  In tcsh you'd say

foreach f (websurvey*pdf)
pdftops -eps \$f
end

In (ba)sh the syntax would differ, but the idea's the same.
Crude though, and doesn't address the real question of course.
