I would like to be able to dictate a voice over my Keynote presentation to save to QuickTime for distribution to my audience after the actual presentation. I purchased QuickTime Pro to do this, but doesn't seem to have this capability. Can anyone point me in the direction of a free or inexpensive audio dictation app that can synchronize with Keynote?

There is a way to do this in QuickTime. I'm using QuickTIme Pro 7 for this.
1. Save your Keynote presentation as a self-contained QuickTIme movie.
2. Open the movie in QuickTime, then select New Audio Recording from the File menu.
3. Record your voiceover into this New Audio window (the Record button is obvious; make sure your mic is working, click "Record," and go) while playing the original movie you created from Keynote.
4. Save the new Audio recording as a self-contained movie.
5. Select Open File from the File menu, find and open the new Audio recording you just created.
6. Select All of the Audio recording, copy it.
7. Place the Playback head at the beginning of your imported Keynote movie (or wherever else you want the audio to start).
8. Select Add to Movie from the Edit menu.
Part of these steps are found on Apple's QuickTime support pages. For more control over the exact timing of slides, it might be better to export the Keynote presentation both as a high quality QuickTime movie and as a set of slides, then edit them together in iMovie and do the voiceover there.
