We have a user with several dozen pst file which we he needs to add to Outlook 2007.  There does not seem to be a way within Outlook to add more than a single data file at a time so I would like to do this via a script.

The script should add all the data files found in a folder to the logged in user's Outlook.  Can this be done?

you can try this code. It seems working, I've done few tests.
Set oOutlook = CreateObject("outlook.application")
Set oNamespace = oOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set oFso = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")

'the path where you store all PST
Const oPath = "C:\MyPSTFiles"

Set oFolder = oFso.GetFolder(oPath)
For Each oFile In oFolder.Files
	If Right(LCase(oFile.Name),4) = ".pst" Then
		oNamespace.AddStore oFile.Path
	End If
