Your son will not be able to enter on a visitor visa and stay until the immigration visa becomes available for his green card. When a person comes to the U.S. on a visitor visa, they are saying they don't have intent to stay permanently -- they are only visiting. Since you have a family petition pending for your son, it is very possible they won't even allow him to come in with a visitor visa, because they'll think he's trying to stay permanently. If your son wants to visit, he can try to convince them he's only coming to visit, but that means he needs to be telling the truth, and he can't stay here waiting for the immigrant visa.
The only other way you can speed up the process is by becoming a U.S. citizen. That will bump your son up into the F1 category (assuming he's unmarried), which will get him here a little faster.
