I think you will need to buy and install - if you haven't already - Pages for iPad. Then I believe iCloud will do the rest for you. I have Pages for the Mac but it's a separate purchase for iPad unfortunately, although not a kings ransom but still a little annoying that you have to pay for it again. You could however try logging in to www.icloud.com on your iPad and seeing if your documents are available via the Pages Beta that appears in there, can't guarantee it but may be a possibility.
Actually, you can use iCloud and the way that you so it is to log into iCloud.com on the Mac (use Safari for best results) click on the Pages icon and then drag the Pages files into the browser window. It works the other way around as well. Log into iCloud.com on the Mac and download the files from Pages (that you created on the iPad) in iCloud onto your Mac. You can click on the file in the documents window and select it to Download by clicking on the Gear icon or right click upon the file and select download.
The files will then sync to the Pages app on the iPad - assuming hat you have use iCloud tuned on in Settings>Pages>Use iCloud>On. I have an iMac running Tiger 10.4.11 that I can still move Pages/Word files back and forth Iike this.
Also, File Sharing with iTunes is a great way to move the files back and forth.
