Is there a way to import a tiff or a pdf into power point so that it makes it one slide per page instead of splitting it yourself?

You'll have to save either format out as image files (such as jpgs) then bring them in.
Or you can click Insert, Object, Create from file and choose the file and click ok.
It'll create an icon that you can click on during the slide show that will open the file in it's native application.

I knew about the creating object, but the user was wanting one page per slide and was hoping to not have to create each slide and split apart the pdf to insert one page per slide

Nope, sorry.  But it can be fairly easy.  Using Adobe, choose the Save As and then chose JPEG as the Save as type.  If you don't have Adobe Acrobat (not Adobe Reader), do a Google Search for PDF Editor and there are many free ones out there.
This will save the pages as individual jpg files.
Then use any of the techniques explained at this site to pull them into slides all at once:
