NConvert can't open doc/docx files or other office formats, it is image editing software.

But there should be a workaround if you can convert the files to PDF format, which can be opened with Ghostscript installed and a suitable DPI value set. Ghostscript can rasterise PDF files that contain vector as well as bitmap content.

Another possibility, in principle, would be to open the source file in LibreOffice and then export it to an image format, but there is no support for batch conversion, and currently only export to JPEG or PNG are supported, I think. MS Word also provides a way to output text files files as images.
