Ajax had controlled the early stages and took the lead just 20 minutes in when Hedwiges Maduro converted.
Star man Wesley Sneijder then extended their advantage just eight minutes later - but is still was not enough for Danny Blind's men.
Into the second half and substitute Johnny Heitinga was dismissed for the home side just after the hour mark after he picked up his second yellow card.
Den Haag looked to have failed to capitalise on their one man advantage, but a quick-fire brace in injury time gave them the unlikeliest of points.
Firstly Eljero Elia fired home a minute into stoppage time, and then in the final seconds Jan Paul Saeijs levelled to silence the home crowd.
The pressure is now firmly on Ajax chief Danny Blind - after just five league games his side sit some eight points behind the joint leaders RKC Waalwijk and AZ Alkmaar.
