I have used forceCoeffs to output Cl Cd and Cm by run time for airfoil calculate.

Now, I'd like to outpot pressure distribution over airfoil by run time post processing. Is there a way to achieve this?

If what i understand from your post is right, you want to post-process pressure field at run-time i.e when ur case is running..

Open paraview from a new terminal while your case is running and load the case and start viewing your pressure field data on it.
