No, you can't, and this is intentional. Pages are meant to live
outside the normal hierarchy of the blog. If placed in a category they
would have to be displayed somehow when viewing the category, based on
time or something, which definitely does not coincide with the purpose
of a page.

If you want your pages in a hierarchy, use subpages.
