I had a similar problem, I just ended up using a table tbh.  Quicker and simpler plus you can set background color as well which was my requirement at the time.

I setup the alignment like $shape->getAlignment()->setHorizontal( PHPPowerPoint_Style_Alignment::HORIZONTAL_CENTER );

This is mentioned in the example files.

How do I setup the background color?

I did the fill on a row, just quickly grabbed my code as follows:

                        ->setStartColor(new PHPPowerPoint_Style_Color($bgcolor1))
                        ->setEndColor(new PHPPowerPoint_Style_Color($bgcolor2));

I take it the alignment didn't work for you?  Try this:

$shape->getActiveParagraph()->getAlignment()->setHorizontal( PHPPowerPoint_Style_Alignment::HORIZONTAL_CENTER );
