Fonts are available to all applications if they are installed in one of the fonts folders the applications use. Apple Casual is an Apple font, probably installed with a previous version of OS X. Having used in in Word means nothing. If you did an erase & install of Leopard & used the migration assistant to move data, fonts in HD > Library > Fonts don't get moved. Only those in your user account > Library > Fonts would have been moved. If you have a back up your previous system you could copy the font to Leopard. Otherwise you'd likely need to use something like Pacifist to extract the font from the previous OS X install disk.
I also noticed the apple casual font in WORD but not in Pages 08. That Apple Casual font is in /library/fonts with the extension .dfont. There are other apple fonts in /system/library/fonts which have the extension .ttf (true type font?). I can't see any pattern here since pages recognizes some .dfont fonts and other .ttf fonts. The Apple Casual font is not in the fontbook application either. For me, this is not a problem since Pages has plenty of fonts to choose from. But it is puzzling. Maybe I can copy apple casual to ~/library/fonts?

On my system, AppleCasual.dfont is where you wrote and it appears in Pages.
So, I assumes that your font file is corrupted.

Thanks, Pages has Apple Braille which I did not see on your picture. How does one get an uncorrupted font file? I am running Leopard, 10.5.2 and you are running 10.4. Maybe that could account for this font puzzle. I am going to copy Apple Casual to ~/Library/Fonts (which is currently empty) and see what happens.
Apple Braille is delivered with Leopard, not with Tiger.
I need a stable enough system, this is why I don't use Leopard daily.
If AppleCasual doesn't appear when stored in /Library/Fonts, as far as I know it will no more appear when it will be moved into ~/Library/Fonts.
Maybe the internal font name was changed in Leopard
