You need to do a bit of formatting - like this: :(

#include <Array.au3>

; Get your array from Excel as normal - we simulate it here
Global $aExcel_Input[5] = ["|UitvD", "|20101010000000", "|20101011000000", "|20101012000000", "|20101013000000"]

For $i = 0 To UBound($aExcel_Input) - 1
    ; Get rid of the |
    $sInput = StringtrimLeft($aExcel_Input[$i], 1)
    ; If the value is a date string then chop out the bits we want and rewrite it
    If Number($sInput) Then $sInput = StringMid($sInput, 7, 2) & "\" & StringMid($sInput, 5, 2) & "\" & StringMid($sInput, 1, 4)
    ; Save the formatted value back into the array
    $aExcel_Input[$i] = $sInput


; Et voila, Robert est le frere de ta mere!

It's also a way without formatting.

An date will stored in excel cell as an number. To get this number don't read out Cell.Value, that gives you only the string: YYYYMMDDhhmmss.

With Cell.Formula you get this number (distance from 1900/1/1 with Excel bug: 1900 as leapyear).

#include <Date.au3>
$oExcel = ObjCreate('Excel.Application')
$oExcel.Visible = 1
$oBook = $oExcel.WorkBooks.Open('C:\test\test.xls')

$iDateValue = $oBook.Sheets(1).Range('A1').Formula
$sDate = _DateAdd('D', $iDateValue -2, '1900/01/01') ; Excel has an leap year bug ==> 1900 will used as leap year, because that: one more day must deduct
ConsoleWrite($sDate & @CRLF)
