Both are protocols are not site to site VPN tunnels. They are more like remote access VPNs.
The site to site VPN is for connecting two corporate sites, whereas the remote access VPN is for connecting a remote client to the corporate network.

Here is how to configure site to site VPN:

Here is some info about PPTP:

Here is some info about L2TP:

The Cisco ASA would not be able to be configured as PPTP server, you can only make the PPTP traffic passthrough.

Do confirm what you are looking to configure, PPTP, L2TP or site to site.
