How important is hitting your utilization at Salesforce? Been waiting five weeks for a SOW to sign and my útil is now below target... will I be let go at the end of the year?

You should be in touch with your manager about this and sales should either have you on a SWE or make you available for other projects. That said, our util is generally 78%, even 5 weeks shouldn't prevent you from getting that for the year. I'm sitting well over 100% with mostly 40 hr weeks and a few days of PTO.

I took four weeks of PTO after a project ended and came back to another five weeks. They booked me to a project before it had signed to make sure I didn’t go anywhere else but it effectively screwed me

Does PTO effect you negatively in hitting utilization target in Salesforce?

There's nothing to fix, our goal is lower on purpose to make the math simpler (no denominator exclusions except if leave of absence, essentially). IIRC Deloitte's util target is much higher than 78% for this reason.
