Unfortunately it's not possible to remove the underline from the hyperlink in PP. It works just fine in Word for an example, but PP has made it impossible.
Note that the color of the hyperlink can be changed through Design tab under Colors button.

While you cannot remove the underline from hyperlinked text, you can create the same effect by hyperlinking to the placeholder instead of the text. To do so:

Remove the existing hyperlink.

Click on the border of the placeholder (textbox)... the border should appear as a solid, not dashed line when it is properly selected.

Now insert the hyperlink.
