If you are already at deloitte i would say it’s only worth it if 1) you are getting the degree free or near free (firm/family/scholarships pay for it), 2) you want to make a large change in the type of consulting you do (especially if its a change to a more “prestigious” practice) ie from tech implementation at B4 to MBB strategy, or 3) you get into Harvard/Stanford/Wharton. That’s really the only 3 options I would say make it worth it. Best if you have a combination of the 3.

When I was at TAP, every PPD I spoke to said no

Yeah, to be a bad ass! Most people who don’t have an MBA says no. If you get into a good school better opportunities no matter what company! It’s all about your network.

I heard that, in order to reach a certain level at Deloitte, you need an MBA. I plan on going back into consulting, but aiming for MBB.

You absolutely don't need MBA to reach a level at Deloitte. Whomever told you that is wrong.
