How can I prevent the legend command to interpret a string as it were a Tex string? For example, str = 'pdf_ParA'. If I use legend( str ) the letter P is displayed as a subscript.

You can use
set(L,'Interpreter','none')
where L is your legend handle or object. You could either return L when you create the legend,
L = legend(...);
or find it with
L = findobj(gcf,'Tag','legend');
Alternatively, if you want other legend entiries to still be interpreted, you can escape the underscores and backslashes in your string with strrep. i.e.,
mystr = strrep(mystr,'\','\\');
mystr = strrep(mystr,'_','\_');
