Squeeze (32- and 64-bit) and Lenny (32-bit only) both support
installation into a Xen domU using the regular Debian Installer,
including preseeding etc. Instructions for use can be seen at
<http://wiki.debian.org/Xen#DomU.28guest.29>. Squeeze even supports
installation from ISOs into a Xen domU (using the multiarch amd64+i386
+powerpc netinst ISO). 

Is there any way this functionality could be exposed via xen-tools to
make it easier to deploy? (I don't know if/how it would fit into the
xen-tools model).
