For Pinyin, you don't need anything additional.

\"u will give you the high, front rounded vowel
\={vowel} will give you first tone
\'{vowel} will give you second tone
\v{vowel} will give you third tone
\`{vowel} will give you fourth tone

I use accentbx.sty to allow for a tone mark over a \"u, and use \i to 
undot the i when you need it.
