You need to download the appropriate language extension file(s) (files are openoffice extensions *.oxt, which are just zip files that contain additional data). Once you have downloaded a dictionary extension file, you can rename it so it has a .zip extension and then extract the *.dic and *.aff files in it to <Pidgin Installation Directory>\spellcheck\share\enchant\myspell\ (create the directories if they don't exist already).

I think that the issue is that you are trying to "open/install" the
file instead of simply downloading and saving it somewhere on your
hard drive (and then following the manual steps above to make it
available to Pidgin).
OpenOffice itself shouldn't be at all involved in the process.
