Not sure what you are after exactly. Do you want the script results sent to syslog? Do you want the script to send messages to syslog?

There are a few ways of doing this that I can think of off the top of my head.

You can just send a message to the syslog port of your server using net-cat like this:
nc -w0 -u <syslog ip> 514 <<< "SOURCELABEL SYSLOGTAGLABEL This is a message for syslog"

Or you could send the output directly to the logger itself:
echo "This is a test" | logger -i

Is this what you want?
