You can use sample along a line (i.e. 'uniform' sampleSet type) with only one point (if that works - never tested it ;-) or use the 'cloud' sampleSet type.

See http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/doc/userse31.html

Cloud takes a 'points' entry in its dictionary instead of 'start' and 'end'. Just look at the error messages if you get it wrong and you should be able to work out the syntax.
