Turn 4k video into a 1080p vertical video (1080x1920)

I want to be able to transform a 4k video into a video with dimensions 1080x1920. I tried using the event crop tool in Sony Vegas however it doesn't work because it leaves black bars on the side of the video and doesn't actually turn the video into 1080x1920.

Is there a way to render the video with the dimensions 1080x1920, with the video cropped to fit those dimensions?

File > Render As > [insert whatever file type you render as here] > Customize Template > Frame Size > HD 1080p (1920x1080) from the drop down menu OR select "Custom" and enter the dimensions yourself.

The title of your post uses the word vertical. Here's some pics of a 4k clip in a Vegas project. My project setting were set to 1080 x 1920. This gave a vertical canvas. I used the track motion to re-size the image to fill out the black bars at the top and bottom. This of course left a lot of video to the left and right. I added two key frames,not shown in these pics, to make it pan from the left to the right in the track motion window. You can use key frames to show the area of the video you want to see.
Notice my project settings at the bottom of the preview window. Notice the 4k video size at the bottom of the project media tab. Is this what you want to do?

Be sure that your project settings are 1080 x 1920. Then, in the pan crop window, click the right mouse button and select "Match Output Aspect". If your video image is now cropped, that means that your 4k video's aspect ratio does not match the aspect ratio for 1080 x 1920. There is no way to overcome that limitation unless you are willing to allow letter boxing (i.e. the black bars) to be used. However, what you can do is manage what portion of your 4k image shows up in your video. You can select the best views, and adjust the view as the video progresses by using keyframes. I use this technique all of the time to fit HD video into the SD format which is required for a DVD.
