Powerpoint doesn't have Hyphenation to turn off, so not sure why your getting hyphenation.

Hello There

You have to uncheck "Allow Latin text to wrap in the middle of a word" in Powerpoint.

Try this solution:
1. Navigate to Start –> Programs –> Microsoft Office –> Microsoft Office Tools –> Office 2016 Language Preferences -> Add Japanese (you'll find out why later).
2. Open Powerpoint -> Home -> Paragraph link -> Click on the tab "Asian Typography"
3. Under "General", you will notice three checkbox options. Uncheck the second check-box (Allow Latin text to wrap in the middle of a word).
