You can prepare everything inside Beamer.  Then, when you have your
final PDF, just run PDFtoKeynote on it, and it converts it into a
Keynote presentation.  From the web page:

PDF to Keynote converts PDF-based presentations (e.g., made using
LaTeX with Prosper, Beamer or foiltex) into Apple's Keynote format.
Once translated into Keynote format, every page of your original PDF
file becomes a PDF image, properly scaled and centered on its own
slide. Although intended for presentations, you can also use it to
create slides for the pages of regular documents.
Because each page of your original document becomes a PDF image, you
can't easily edit those pages except by adding new content over the
top to mask things out.

If you'd like, of course, it's possible to do some editing in Keynote
after you convert your PDF ... like adding pictures or movies, slide
transitions, etc.
