I am not sure, if it is too late. However, i can find only one solution. The online converter "http://www.convertfiles.com" worked great for me. I had my thesis generated in Mac ms word 2011 with lots of hyperlinks. All of them retained in converted PDF
Try it out,
This works well, thanks for posting! For those who are interested, I compared the PDF output of the ConvertFiles.com tool with that from the similar tool, YouConvertIt.com http://www.youconvertit.com.
I think the fonts in the YouConvertIt PDF are better than those output via ConvertFiles.com (using Arial as the original Word 2011 for Mac as the font - haven't tried other fonts yet). I also used Googledocs to upload the Word doc and then export/download to PDF for comparison. Googledocs also preserves hyperlinks as the other online conversion tools above do, but I found that the hyperlink underline was thicker on the GDocs version. For many, these are unimportant details, but some may find it helpful.
If the full URL address is written in the Word doc, then both Save As... PDF and Print -> PDF preserve links in my experience, however if the URL is replaced with an alias (not showing the full http:// text) then the links are not preserved. I haven't found a way around this within Word 2011 for Mac.
