"padj" means perpendicular adjustment, that means bottom/top adjustment in this case.
You need the regular "adj" here, which cannot do the trick for axis(), but you can workaround with mtext():

  plot(1:50, yaxt="n")
  axis(2, at=1:50, labels=FALSE)
  mtext(paste('a',1:50,sep=''), 2, at=1:50, las=2,     cex=0.5, adj=0, line=1.5)
