You typically do this by translating custom catalogs and price lists into dimensions and catalog-specific properties so that the product set can be pre-filtered before applying search. I don't believe User Profiles will really give you what you want.
The way I typically think about it is that User Profiles influence the way in which users are presented with content but it doesn't have an effect on the content itself. We've worked on the largest custom catalog project undertaken on the platform (back in our days at Endeca) so feel free to reach out if you need more information.
