I am trying to create a custom agenda view that displays the deadline date 
(rather than the tags) associated with certain entries.

So, rather than:

 todo:  TODO Finish the task           :Work:

I want to display:

 todo:  TODO Finish the task           5 February 2012

I haven't been able to find the appropriate variables to control this. 
Suggestions?

I don't think you can do this ... but you can use column view to overlay
the deadline on the agenda.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+COLUMNS: %50ITEM %DEADLINE
* Deadline agenda view                                                :sometag:
DEADLINE: <2012-02-04 Sat>
[2012-02-05 Sun 09:39]
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

With this org file open

C-c C-c on the #+COLUMNS: line once to set the value

C-c a 1 a   - goes to the agenda with only this file
C-c C-x C-c - start column view displaying deadlines

You can set this as your default agenda view with

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-columns-default-format "%50ITEM %DEADLINE"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

then you can use it in any agenda view to overlay the deadline details.

HTH,
Bernt
