PowerPoint behaves the way you'd expect it to re bullets and tabs when you're entering text into a body text placeholder, but not when you're entering text into a regular text shape or other shape.

If it's not a text placeholder, use the Increase List Level and Decrease List Level buttons on the Paragraph group of the Home tab instead of using the tab key.
