That page also has a typo, dV = r^2sin(theta) dr dtheta dphi, not r^2sin^2(theta) dr dtheta dphi.
Correct, adding an external electric field modifies all sorts of things. But this is the first order correction in perturbation theory, which only rarely is an exact correction to the energy.

Why are we assuming E along Z-axis only ?, It could be in any of ( x, y ) in cartesian or ( r ) in Cylindrical c--ordianate system.The question did not specify any direction right ?
