If the data required for your chart is already within Excel, then you can create your chart in Excel itself, and then copy-paste it into a PowerPoint slide. This is true for all versions of PowerPoint since Office 2007 since Excel does the charting even within PowerPoint from version 2007 onwards. Alternatively, if you need to add data manually, and also if you are using an older version of PowerPoint (such as 2003), you can directly insert a new chart within PowerPoint.
