If you don't mind PostScript output, you can try the command "\psovalbox"
in the "pstricks" package as in

\begin{center}
\psovalbox{%
\parbox{0.5\textwidth}{%
\begin{itemize}
\item The first item
\item The second item
\item The third and last item
\end{itemize}}}
\end{center}

Also, if by an ovalbox you don't mean an actual ellipse, but only a frame
with rounded corners, you can try the command "\ovalbox" in the "fancybox"
package as in

\begin{center}
\cornersize{5}
\ovalbox{%
\parbox{0.5\textwidth}{%
\begin{itemize}
\item The first item
\item The second item
\item The third and last item
\end{itemize}}}
\end{center}
