Either the hose connections are leaking at the rack or the rack is leaking. If you're not seeing any fluid, disconnect one of the bellows at the end of the rack. I bet fluid will pour out

If it's not a serpetine belt, max deflection of 3/4" on longest segment should be safe,  don't make alternator belt tight as a drum or you will burn out alternator bearings quickly.  If it has serpentine belt, the spring tensioner should keep the belt properly tensioned unless it's worn out.
It only needs to be tight enough to not slip, too loose will squeal and you will have to tighten,  to tight will kill alternator and you will spend $$.

You should be able to see the power steering unit, it has a pulley on the front and a cap for putting in fluid, if the pulley is empty belt is gone, check fluid in reservoir if belt is there.

2001 Elantra, are either of the 2 hoses coming from the power steering fluid reservoir a high pressure hose?


They are not high pressure hoses. They are fluid supply and return hoses. The fluid becomes pressurized once passed thru the pump. From there you'll notice the makeup of the hoses are significantly different; which is where the high pressure occurs.
