I assume a,b ... are some numbers fixed before. In this case try this:

a = 3^2; b = 5^2; c = 9^2; d = 11^2; e = 15^2; f = 18^2;
pt = {{3, a}, {5, b}, {9, c}, {11, d}, {15, e}, {18, f}}

Plot[Evaluate@Fit[pt, {0, x, x^2, x^3, x^4, x^5, x^6}, x], {x, 0, 18}]

Have fun, Alexei

pt = {{3, a}, {5, b}, {9, c}, {11, d}, {15, e}, {18, f}}
Plot[Fit[pt, {0, x, x^2, x^3, x^4, x^5, x^6}, x], {x, 0, 18}]

I want to use this type of plot inside a dynamic module (see link to notebook below for full code).
Doesnt work though.
  I know i can use InterpolatingPolynomial[] inside Plot[] for similar effect but it doesnt produce the same curve.

This is a link to a notebook with the full code:
