Sure, lots of ways.  For example

  (add-to-list org-file-apps '("pdf" . "xpdf %s"))

But the since the default value of org-file-apps-defaults-gnu is

,----[ C-h v org-file-apps-defaults-gnu RET ]
| org-file-apps-defaults-gnu's value is 
| ((remote . emacs)
|  (t . mailcap))

It would be even better to adjust (or create) your ~/.mailcap.  Then not
only org but most apps will honor this association.  For example I have

,----[ ~/.mailcap ]
| application/pdf; okular '%s'

to open pdfs with okular.

Hope that helps,
