Sadly there is a misguided belief that Powerpoint is some sort of "standard" (look, I just have to say this--I HATE Powerpoint and think that it is one of the great misfortunes that has befallen the art of communication...), so IF you can transition to using Mathematica to do your presentations it will open up Vistas (sorry the pun) in presentation possibilities that are Reimann surfaces beyond whatever MS products will ever achieve... OK, that said (and done with emotional rant), I assume that there is no integration of Powerpoint with Flash video (MS really does not do much with moving Powerpoint forward--I suspect that it is the one product that they filed with the least development resources placed upon it). But if Flash were something that Powerpoint could display then, as a stopgap, you could export your Manipulate as a SWF file and embed it in the Powerpoint to at least show some of what the Manipulate can do.
