Sitefinity wouldn't block a folder. Adding a physical folder and dropping that report on the proper place should function, so it probably means you'll have to check your server configuration.
Anyway, the fastest way outside Sitefinity, would be to just create a IIS rewrite rule.
Make the http:/www.example.com/reports/the-report.pdf the pattern and redirect them to the url of the document from the sitefinity library.
When you upload a document to the library in sitefinity it gives you an direct url, something like /docs/defaultlibrary/document. You can verify the url by going to content >> documents and files and chose Embed link to this file. That gives you a pop-up with the url.
