Question:
Are passwords stored in the SAM (formerly PUPM) database encypted or plaintext?

This is the same database that is used for the ENTM (Enterprise Management).
Answer:
The passwords are encrypted. 

If you want to see them you can execute the following against the ENTM database: 

SELECT NEW_PASSWORD, OLD_PASSWORD from ACCOUNT_PASSWORD; 
SELECT PASSWORD FROM ACCOUNT_PASSWORD_HISTORY;
