All standard attributetypes are defined in the schemas that come with
OpenLDAP. You define what schema files your slapd uses in the slapd.conf
file. Refer to these schema files for the standard attributetype set, which
you probably shouldn't mess with. Refer to an LDAP manual for an explanation
of the syntax of the schemas.
You can, of course, define your own attributetypes and objectclasses.

This is probably a client-side issue. But I could be wrong...

Change the ACLs by editing the slapd.conf file. Specifically change the
access controls for whatever info you want to hide.
