Connect point features from separate files based on cell value

Hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I have two shape files, type point. I am trying to map the connections between each point based on a unique, matching attribute value in each file. The attribute in question is a number. I could not find any toolbox suitable for this operation so I am trying to write a script. Is this even possible?

1. Loop through each attribute cell value in each file
2. If value is equal, use PointsToLine to draw a line between the records with this matching value

Any thoughts or guidance is appreciated!
