Is there a quick way to tell which packages are provided by which overlays without installing the overlay? For example what programs are provided by gentoo-science?

That depends on the overlay. Science has a web interface at http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/science/browser

You can search through overlays on this page:
http://gentoo.zapto.org/

If you want to browse a specific overlay, I suggest you really add it via layman or playman and use find.
Most overlays have a webinterface somehwere, but not all of them in the same place.
Edit: Just saw, that at least some of the overlays are heaviliy outdated. So maybe not the best thing.

You could have told me Berniyh ;)
I've just performed maintenance on the website, providing support for new EAPIs.
I'm also making a basic overlay browser (I think that providing pointers to http://gentoo.zapto.org/repos/${overlay} on http://gentoo.zapto.org/overlays/${overlay} would be enough)...
