No, the connectors are completely different. The MacBook Air charger looks like MacBook and MacBook Pro chargers. The iPad charger is more like an iPhone/iPod Touch charger, I believe.

Correct, it uses the same 30-pin dock connector that the iPod/iPhone do, it's just more powerful (but can be used with iPod or iPhone).
