That is not true.  Slide film has a lower dynamic range (which loosely
translates into the number of tones the film can capture...it's a little
more involved than that, but that's the basics of it) than negative film,
therefore negative film gives you more tonality.

Slide film has a larger DENSITY range than negative film.  Slides DO have
more contrast for a number of reasons.  One is that they have a lower
dynamic range...second is because the have a higher density range, and three
is because they have a smaller exposure latitude.
