Try adding dest_base="ppui" to those params.  That should create a
"ppui.dll".  I'm guessing that maybe the py2exe created PowerPointUI.dll is
satisfying an "import PowerPointUI" done by Python, but failing.

Also, have a look at py2exe/boot_com_servers.py - by enabling the "if 0:"
block, you should be able to see the error written to c:\comerror.txt.
