How can I specify a vector key for the SymmetricAlgorithmProvider? I need to search on the encrypted values stored in Sql. In it's current implementation, SymmetricAlgorithmProvider uses a random IV for every encryption request.

You would have to create your own symmetric algorithm provider if you want to achieve the behavior you want.
