As the previous post indicated, traditional (and some modern) Tele neck pickups are mounted onto the wood itself, using surgical tubing to adjust their height.  
Why don't you try filling the holes on the pickup base using something like JB Weld, and then drilling and tapping for #4 screws? If you want to use that pickup, it's either that, or a pickguard with two unused holes in it...
