My immediate response would be to ask why you aren't using \maketitle
given that the command is beamer-aware?  That is, \maketitle will create
a title page whose format is defined by the beamer theme you have
selected.  Otherwise, you could always customise
=org-export-latex-title-command= to nothing and use direct latex code to
do what you want:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+begin_latex
\begin{frame} \titlepage \end{frame}
#+end_latex
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I've not tried this.

Can you tell us exactly what you have done to customise the relevant
variables and where you have done these customisations?  Difficult to
help without this information unfortunately.  While we're at it, org and
emacs version information is also helpful.
