How do I get Snow Leopard to recognize an old RS-232 UPS?

Instead of blowing $100+ on a brand new UPS, I decided to try to resuscitate the ancient CPS350SL that got me through college and grad school. One $7 sealed lead-acid battery later and it's back in business and working like a champ.

You probably can't. The USB to serial adapter is going to create a serial port, and the system isn't going to know what to do with it. USB UPS's are recognized based on the ID of the USB device when they are plugged in.
