PPTP doesn't do that (the protocol doesn't deal with users).
Set your ppp options appropriately.  By default I am pretty sure it does
log connect/disconnect (with username if available) to syslog.

"worst case" you can always add something to /etc/ppp/ip-{up,down}
to record info in whatever format you want wherever you like.
