Would the dock output of the iPad, via the USB camera connector, provide enough power for this preamp to work?

Excellent question. YES... but there is a caveat. Connecting the Icicle to the iPad via the USB camera connector won't provide enough power and you will get a warning about how "the device uses too much power," and the iPad will ignore it.
HOWEVER, if you 1) connect the Icicle to a powered USB hub, and then 2) connect the hub's USB to the USB camera connector, you will be able to use an XLR mic connected to the Icicle - even ones that require phantom power.

The iPad camera connector *only* downloads photos from digital cameras or SD cards. It doesn't support any other functions or USB peripherals.
