You can add a hyperlink to a PowerPoint slide and point it to an EXE file which will then launch the program. Highlight the text you want to use as a link and press Ctrl+K to open the hyperlink window. Browse to your program and press OK to insert the link.

Be aware that you will get at least one or two warnings about opening potentially dangerous links:

Warning #1 Warning #2

As long as you know the program and where it is launching from, you should be safe.
