    I setup a VPN user... is there a way to ensure that that users can only login from a certain MAC address?

    No, there would be no sense in doing so. The MAC address is available in the local LAN, only. It is not possible to use MAC addressing through the Internet.

    I'm not sure what your set up is or what exactly you want to do, but if you have an end-point VPN router with a tunnel to another site that was set up to allow connection to the tunnel only within a restricted IP range of your LAN and then all computers on your LAN could be assigned their IPs by static DHCP according to their MACs.
