The most common cause for a transmission not to shift into certain gears is low transmission fluid. Another cause is a broken shifting fork in the transmission.

Will a faulty slave cylinder cause a clutch to slip?

A faulty slave cylinder will not cause your clutch to slip. The slave cylinder is made up of a housing and a rod. The rod pushes the throwout lever against the throwout bearing, that push the teeth on the clutch housing causing the clutch to disengage and you are allowed to shift the gears. When a slave cylinder fails it makes it difficult for you to shift gears. When it completely fails you will not be able to change gears at all for the most part. I sincerely hope this helps you. The only exception would be if the slave cylinder managed to leak fluid onto the clutch disc.
