From what I know, only God can create life and bring someone back from the dead. So if a prophet had the ability to bring people back from the dead (or even create life), would that make him something greater than a prophet?
He would be a prophet through whom God worked a miracle. In fact, this happened with the prophet Elisha, as recorded in Melachim II 4. Elisha had told a Shunammite woman who had treated him very kindly that she would have a son. She did, and then the boy died. She cried to Elisha, who ran to her house, closed himself in the room with the dead boy, prayed to God, and brought the boy back to life. It is clear that it is God who did the reviving, through Elisha. The prophet did not "have the ability" to bring the dead back to life; it wasn't his decision or his action. It was his prayer/plea. There is a similar incident with Eliyahu in Melachim I 17:22.)
Similarly, in Yechezkel 37 the prophet Yechezkel (Ezekiel) prophesies, at God's command, to the dry bones, and they are reanimated and brought to life -- but it is God doing the reanimating. Yechezkel doesn't have the power to do this independently; God used him as His vehicle for producing the miracle.
Elisha, Eliyahu, and Yechezkel are prophets, same as many others. They don't have any additional, special status by having been involved in these miracles. They have no power to bestow life. No man does.
One might argue that in fact God has never raised the dead through a prophet -- that the people raised through Elisha and Eliyahu hadn't really died but merely fainted, and that Yechezkel saw a vision and not an actual resurrection. Even if all that were the case, the answer would not change: people don't create life; God does. That we have these prophetic events in our history reinforces that idea, but if you were to say that the incidents didn't actually happen that way, that wouldn't falsify our understanding.
