From the Tumblr customization docs you can grab the {Permalink} of the current page using the shortcode just shown.

Is there a shortcode to retrieve the most recent post?

Well, if it's not in the customization docs, it can't exist. However, there's a simple workaround. First, you need to "burn" your RSS feed with FeedBurner and then enable the feature BuzzBoost in Publicize tools setting it to display just the latest item from the feed.
