I purchased a little "Dragon Tree" plant from Aldi's for a buck. The little guy was dry as a bone and very droopy so i Decided to rescue him. I took him home, watered him and he perked up the next day. Now his leaves are starting to turn from green to purple orange and dry up at the ends. Can anyone help me??

As you say, he was dry as a bone. The roots probably have been damaged by the drought. Just give him time, there may be hope in the long run. Keep the soil moist but not wet, and new roots may develop.
