Is it possible to have an overlay that can intercept a response from a
backend and use data from the response to generate a new request for
the backend? I would like to aggregate data from multiple requests
into 1 response back to the client.

I guess it is. Some of the overlays you can find in servers/slapd/overlays/ do
something like that, and I've recently developed one for my employer that
turns the result of a search into more searches to the same backend and glues
the resulting data together. This is what overlays are intended for. You may
need to be a bit more specific if you want more specific help, though.
