Do these sentences sound natural? (ellipsis did, do) a. John reviewed the play more favorably than Mary did the book. b. I rolled up a paper as easily as Lynn did a magazine. c. You probably feel at least as relieved as I do jubilant. d. Rona sounded just as annoyed as Sue did frustrated.

Yes, all sound perfectly natural (although it'd be rare to find someone that uses the word jubilant!)

c. is a little bit off..."jubilant" and "relieved" do not as well align--the former being several keys higher (in tune).
