The theme I'm using includes a slideshow that generates an additional 4 image sizes for every image that is uploaded. I don't need to have all those images being generated for every image.

Is there a way to remove the slideshow thumbnail sizes for a custom post type in my child theme?

I don't think this is possible. I've been searching for something like this as well and haven't come up with a solution. Here is a post I found that may get you headed in the right direction: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-set-different-thumbnail-sizes-per-custom-post-type

It's starting to look like it's not possible. It's a shame to have to create all those versions ov every image. – coopersita May 7 '13 at 23:26
