Travelling between La Paz and Buenos Aires is pretty straightforward and easy. Don't know what you would like to see in between but tours to the Saltflats leave from Uyuni and Tupiza.

From La Paz you can either travel by bus to Uyuni and Tupiza or by bus to Oruro and than onwards by train to Uyuni and Tupiza which is more relaxed and comfortable.
Tupizatours has very good and affordable tours from both places, and you can end in either of the two places as well.

I guess there are direct flights between La Paz and BA, but you want to travel to the saltflats right?

Don't know exactly how much time you have but I would say if you have a week you can easily do a tour from let's say Uyuni, then go on to Salta in northern Argentina and take a domestic flight in argentina which is cheaper than flying from La Paz.
Salta is about a day travelling from Uyuni, bit shorter from Tupiza
