Recent versions of PowerPoint use a cross-platform file format. There's nothing special you need to convert it. You just need to move the file over to the Windows machine somehow.

It also helps to tell the Windows machine it's a PowerPoint file. You can do this by naming the file 'anyname.ppt'.

You may possibly have problems with PowerPoint versions. Generally, newer versions of PowerPoint can import files produced by older versions. In some case, you can import newer files with older applications if you install a converter. Look on 'macfiles' on 'Squirrel Public' in the Kalman zone (afp://squirrel.bio.brandeis.edu:12001) for a couple of PowerPoint converters that do this for the Mac version.
