Both Parallels and VMWare allow you to set up a virtual machine using your existing Boot Camp partition. Does Virtual PC for mac have a similar feature?

No as Virtual PC is form PowerPC macs and not Intel ones. You will need an intel virtualization product e.g. VirtualBox which is free or Parallels or VMWare
