Is there some sort of free and/or open source converter that could be used on a Linux or Windows server to convert ODP (Open Office presentations) into Powerpoint files?

You can use oood, from Nexedi. I've used it under Linux to convert odt documents to various formats, but it can be made working also for odp to ppt; it is an xml-rpc server, and client with samples are provided in a number of languages.

A new version of this is cloudooo, same company, but never actually tried it.

Why not just save the files in PowerPoint format from OpenOffice?

The files come in ODP, and I need them converted. These files aren't necessarily coming from Open Office directly and they need to be stored in ODP on my server before being downloaded in PPT. –  Andrew M Jul 30 '11 at 21:11
There are some scripting facilities available through the Python integration which may be utilized to automate your needs. –  user48838 Jul 30 '11 at 21:26
