In theory, yes, but it won't be easy, because there's no readily available toolkit to use.  You can use VBA to call Salesforce.com Web Service API to update content in your PowerPoint.

Integrating SFDC data into Word and Excel are much easier since there's Connect for Office from SFDC - basically they're add-ons that communicate with salesforce.com - so pulling real time data is quite straightforward.
