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

Yes, use the orderby and order clause in your query posts.

query_posts( array('orderby'=>'menu_order', 'order' => 'ASC' ) );

See: WP_Query#Order for reference

    Please note that you also need to use order argument, example: 'order' => 'ASC'. Commented Dec 29, 2015 at 18:43
