PDF as in Adobe PDF and PPT as in MS Powerpoint ? You can try a Open Source Java library for PDF and PPT. I don't if it can applies to Android but can give a try. iText for PDF, Apache POI for Powerpoint.

I am saying you can use iText API to read the PDF file and then you use Apache POI API to write Excel file. But if you are looking for an API that have a convertPDFToExcel method then I don't know if there is one.
