I'm a recovering Windows user (ie: victim) and new to the Apple/Mac environment (just purchased a Macbook Pro) and I'd like to know if "iWeb" provides the same level of sophistication as "FrontPage" or "DreamWeaver" for developing and deploying websites. If not, can anyone recommend other Apple/Mac-based applications for this purpose. Please note I do not want to write my own html code.

The iLife suite was designed for the average consumer whose needs aren't that great, and as such, iWeb is a very simple web authoring program. If you need more than just basic functionality that the iLife apps offer, then Apple offers a professional line of software that is much more full-featured.

Short answer, no, iWeb doesn't offer the same level of sophistication as DreamWeaver or Frontpage.
