I am looking for an open-source management solution that has support for access control. For some reason I wasn't able to access the control panel demo site but I went through dtc-xen's presentation and have not seen anything related to access control. Could you point me to a link where this is explained?

Until now, I've only seen mention of such a feature on Eucalyptus Enterprise Edition.
from�http://www.eucalyptus.com/products/eee: "Sophisticated user, group, and role management allows precise control of resources within a private cloud"

If it is not available in any free and open-source software, I am planning to implement it myself. Either by extending one of the management solutions or modifying the Xen code itself.

Is anyone aware of an open-source solution (CLI or webGUI) that can restrict access to users based on their roles?
For instance, I want to limit what role X can do to just list their own VMs and restart or shut it down.

If you are talking about a Xen hosting solution, then there are many solutions available, both free and paid for. A good paid for one is SolusVM. A good free one is from the guys at GPLHost
