Can we still run our DTS package on SQL 2000 to pull data from a SQL 2005 database with compatibility level set to "SQL Server 2005 (90)" ??

Yes, you can.

That said, there were some new datatypes introduced in 2005 (off the top of my head, XML and VARCHAR(MAX), plus user defined types) - so you'll have to look out for those as they would cause a problem.
