Just put into your .emacs:
(setq ess-swv-pdflatex-commands '("pdflatex" "make"))

This is and in-build functionality so you will have to modify the ess-swv-PDF and
put it into your .emacs. Something along these lines (I've just removed the shell
call to the default reader):
(defun ess-swv-PDF (&optional pdflatex-cmd)
"From LaTeX file, create a PDF (via 'texi2pdf' or 'pdflatex', ...), by
default using the first entry of `ess-swv-pdflatex-commands' and display it."
(let ((def (elt ess-swv-pdflatex-commands 0)))
(completing-read (format "pdf latex command (%s): " def)
ess-swv-pdflatex-commands ; <- collection to choose from
nil 'confirm ; or 'confirm-after-completion
nil nil def))))
(let* ((buf (buffer-name))
(namestem (file-name-sans-extension (buffer-file-name)))
(latex-filename (concat namestem ".tex"))
(tex-buf (get-buffer-create " *ESS-tex-output*"))
;;(shell-command (concat "pdflatex " latex-filename))
(message "Running '%s' on '%s' ..." pdflatex-cmd latex-filename)
(call-process pdflatex-cmd nil tex-buf 1
(if (string= "texi2" (substring pdflatex-cmd 0 5))
;; workaround (bug?): texi2pdf or texi2dvi *fail* to work with full path:
(if (not (= 0 pdf-status))
(message "** OOPS: error in '%s' (%d)!" pdflatex-cmd pdf-status)
;; else: pdflatex probably ok
