If you have Office2010 installed, you can try this yourself:
go to c:\program files\tortoisesvn\Diff-Scripts
and open the file diff-ppt.js in a text editor.

Change the line
if (PptAppMajorVersion(powerpoint) >= 12)

if (PptAppMajorVersion(powerpoint) == 12)

and then try diffing a powerpoint file again.

Please report back whether that works or not.
