looked through the listed extensions, but I have been unable to find
anything about keeping mediawiki accounts from being brute-forced. I'm
specifically looking for something that locks an account down after a
specified number of login attempts or which adds time between login
requests when the password is given incorrectly. Do measures like this
exist? Did I just use the wrong search terms?

ConfirmEdit has a feature where user logins are CAPTCHA-ed if a login
attempt fails. This only applies if you have caching enabled though.
