You can't do this with the iPad exactly.

The closest that may work for you if your camera uses an SD card for memory is to use any Eye-Fi card that can send the to an iPad app called Shuttersnitch.

You could try using the onOne DSLR camera remote app. They claim you can remotely fire & control your Canon or Nikon DSLR from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, plus start, stop and monitor video on supported HD DSLR cameras. The app also includes an intervalometer and auto-bracketing for HDR photographers.

Not exactly a monitor in the strictest sense, but it may be a usable workaround.
