PTTP with bodyweight lifts

Yes, sticking to the spirit of the program. Low reps frequently with tension and tempo.

While weighted dips would be a suitable 'press' variation, I feel you'd have a hard time replacing the deadlift with an effective bodyweight alternative.

It depends on what you're looking to achieve though. Pull-ups and dips (especially with added weight) would form an effective routine for the upper body. All that's missing is lower body/posterior chain work.

How about Chest, push-ups to be specific. Are there any exercises or push-up variations that suits to PTTP?

I thought he meant in addition to Barbell lifts. Yes, as an add on, No, as a replacement.

Simply strong

I meant as a substitute. Obviously no better strength lift than the deadlift, and probably will never do this program with other lifts, but if it suited your needs better would it work with various callisthenics movements like dips, pull ups, pistol squat, hip bridges, handstand push ups....?
As a secondary question which bodyweight lifts would work best?
