Is it possible to sort pages in the loop using the admin's order field (under page attributes)?

Yes, use the orderby clause in your query posts.

query_posts( array('orderby'=>'menu_order' ) );

See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/WP_Query#Order_.26_Orderby_Parameters for reference

Awesome - thank you! – Ryan Mar 9 '11 at 0:25
Please note that you also need to use order argument, example: 'order' => 'ASC'. – Souvlaki Dec 29 '15 at 18:43
