If you don't want to use Powerpoint to do it, then you can do it in MATLAB if you use ActiveX to control Powerpoint. There are several activex examples around, but it won't be trivial. Most of the examples are for MATLAB to control Excel, not Powerpoint.

You would need to use the COM interface and many cups of coffee:
