I don't think so. Pvc pipe cannot even used for hot water distribution. I don't know how hot the engine exhaust is, but I'm pretty sure it would melt the pipe. ( I am a master plumber.)

The temperature of the exhaust just after the catalytic converter can reach 700 degrees F.

No, do not use glue. Use teflon tape or pipe dope on the threads. You should also make sure you always put the male PVC thread into the female metal thread. If you do it the other way you will tend to split the PVC fitting when you tighten the threads.
