There is no feature built in to puppet that compares to chef bootstrap that I am aware of.

The common alternatives are:

Include puppet in the PXE images the servers boot from
Use razor for provisioning
Use the foreman for provisioning
Use a locally hosted repo
Use hashicorps bootstrap scripts

Here are two other articles on how to kickstart nodes with puppet

Fixed the link, the underscores were being interpreted.
