The error message is telling you the problem, but not very well :-)

The function expects a list of tuples.  So, for example, you code should 
work with:

AdjustTokenPrivileges (processToken, 0, [(provValue,SE_PRIVILEGE_ENABLED)] )

I actually provide this exact example in Programming Python on Win32.
