No.  base64 has nothing to do with attribute definitions, nor with
anything else in LDAP except the LDIF file format.  (Some backends make
use of the LDIF format internally instead of a more efficient format.
What you just said is that back-sql is not one of them.)  So:

Looks to me like you need to read up on LDAP and LDIF.  E.g. the LDAP
wikipedia article.  Then, if you still have trouble, please take this to
the openldap-software list.
