So far as I can tell, apps that are installed through the Mac App Store can be deleted through Launchpad (the circle with the 'X'). Apps installed through other means (or the ones that come pre-installed on your Mac) cannot be deleted this way.

It is the same way on iOS devices, and Launchpad on your Mac is the same thing as the home screen on an iOS device. The apps that came with the iOS device cannot be deleted, but apps you download from the App Store can by touching the circle with the X. By default on an iOS device you cannot install apps from any source other than the App store, but if you jailbreak that device you can...and those apps you install from other sources cannot be deleted by touching the circle with the X (there is no circle with the X, just like those types of apps on your Mac)
