Is there a way to format messages sent from Flow to Slack? I tried using the <b></b> tag to bold text, but it treated the tag as text.

This is an accepted solution.

Flow does allow formatting messages with the Slack action - Slack's API docs have the details with examples. So to bold the text, you can use:

*text to bold*

 Thanks for the question!

That worked! I'll leave a screenshot for anyone else needing a reference. I'm bolding the text in this example.
