I have a print that has a callout for .0001" straightness and .0001" roundness on a diameter.
Would this be the same thing as .0001" Cylindricity?

I believe the straightness requirement is the same as cylindricity.
Cylindricity would be placing a perfect cylinder on the inside curve and a perfect cylinder on the outside curve, with the cylindricity being the distance between them. As in this definition: http://www.taylor-hobson.com/faqrounddetail.asp?faqid=45
You would pretty much do the same thing for straightness, but the roundness requirement sounds like making it perfectly round, which is not part of the cylindricity definition.
