Just guessing here, but maybe vim needs the path to the actual binary,
rather than the application package; that would be
let g:Tex_ViewRule_pdf = '/Applications/Preview.app/Contents/MacOS/
Alternatively, rather than calling Preview directly, you could try the
"open" command, which is the usual way to open arbitrary files and
apps from the command line:
let g:Tex_ViewRule_pdf = 'open -a Preview'
