I use colour diagrams (saved as pdf files) which I include in my LaTeX file. Is there any options in pdflatex to create a gray scale document or a pdf viewer where you can view the document in gray scale?

Enabling you to view the document and fix any problems before it gets printed on a non-colour printer.

No. None of the TeX engines (pdftex, XeTeX, LuaTeX) allows color correction of included images. The best you can do is set all colors generated in your document to gray scale.
