You don't actually need to call it in a loop- 
just run
    pdf2swf file.pdf -o page%.swf

I guess that your viewer application will be Flash 9. 
So what I'd recommend is doing
    pdf2swf -T9 -s linkfunction file.pdf -o page%.swf
That'll generate a Flash TextEvent
every time the user clicks on a link.
The event's text will be the link URL or page number.
