Why are there so many different empowerments/deities?

Are you asking why Rinpoche is giving so many different empowerments, or are you asking why there are so many deities in general?

Why is he giving so many empowerments? It would be difficult to join all of them. This is generation stage, right?

You don't have to attend all of them. Just one would be sufficient. He surely has his reasons for doing what he is doing. As a rule, it is a generosity of spirit, kindness, and compassion on his or her part that motivates a Buddhist master to teach.

Well, it gives people the opportunity to practice them in the future, if need be. Also, there's an idea I have heard several times that just receiving empowerments is very beneficial and auspicious. For example, the Rinchen Terdzo contains hundreds of empowerments and takes many months to bestow, but it is considered very positive to receive it even though it would be literally impossible to do all of the practices.

As an aside: I would appreciate it if someone with the means to do so could invite Loppon Ogyan Tenzin Rinpoche to the U.S.

The empowerment is an empowerment, it enables you to do a given practice which will typically inlude both generation and completion stages.

Each deity personifies an aspect of one's enlightened nature. Some aspects will draw some people, other aspects will draw other people. The idea is to give people the opportunity to practice.

Compare it to a buffet for people that are hungry: you offer a variety of food to allow all present to take the type of food they want/need.

This is by no means "lots of empowerments". When I received the Chikse Kungdrol from Beru Khyentse Rinpoche he gave 20 something empowerments in five days. And that's not the full range available of that cycle. He removed quite a few and added others that he felt would be of greater value to the Greek Sangha.
This is generation stage, right?
This is empowerment: An introduction to your enlightened nature via the specific qualities of each deity.

Another reason for giving multiple empowerments is to insure that the transmission of the Dudjom Tersar continues to exist. If one looks at what Rinpoche has been doing summer after summer in Europe, I think this is definitely part of His game-plan. And receiving the entire Dudjom Tersar is also the game-plan of at least one of His European hosts.

Two years ago, I invited Rinpoche to teach in the U.S. and He graciously accepted. Then, for a variety of reasons having to do with other Teachers and some health issues, I didn't follow through on that. At the moment, it's still not possible. But I can say that Rinpoche is definitely willing to come to the U.S. to teach, or at least He was in the summer of 2015.
