A Mac turned off is an unresponsive Mac. There are apps that can access a sleeping Mac remotely, but if you want/need to have the computer turned off, then I think your only choice is to invest in a remote plug that can be accessed via your iPad. If you set up your Mac to wake after power loss, then when you activate the power plug it will seem to the computer as if it is getting power after an outage and should turn on.
Belkin makes a switch called the WeMo Home Automator Switch that appears to do this.
Then you need some app like Splashtop installed on both the computer and the iPad so you can access things on the computer.
