Yes, you can enter any criteria in the search field on the iPhone that you can in the web app, so you can construct very complicated searches.
Personally, I"d like to see a larger text entry box for this (multiline with wrapping), in *both* the web app and on the iPhone, but the fact that you can enter complex search criteria on the iPhone *at all* is a huge advantage of RTM over other solutions.
Note as well that there is at least one iPhone-specific search criteria that can be used as well: "locatedWithin" that allows you to built a Smart List that uses the iPhone or iPod touch location services to show you tasks located within a certain distance of where you're standing. A Smart List with this criteria will still sync back to the main RTM system, but of course won't show anything from the web browser, since your browser doesn't know where you are.
