... or do I need to install JDK 5.0 or 6.0?

According to the System Requirements, the Android r15 SDK requires JDK 5 or JDK 6. That doesn't necessarily preclude the possibility of using JDK 7; but I'm not a Mac, so I can't tell you if it works or not.
However, I can tell you that even if you did run the SDK on JDK 7, none of JDK 7 would be available to you in your Android apps. None of the JDK 7 API have been migrated to Android. None the JDK 7 language changes are available because when the java files are compiled they're compiled with both target and source set to JDK 5.
