You could try to use a vtkCutter and a vtkPlane to do the job.

cut = vtkCutter()
plane = vtkPlane()
<configure the plane properties>
mapper = vtkPolyDataMapper()

This should get you the scalars and vectors on the plane.  I dont know
why the probe filter didnt work for you - maybe something is wrong
with the pipeline you have used?
