I have successfully added attributetypes and objectclasses following the

I was wondering if I could do the same action using ldapmodify and a ldif
file?  Am I correct that this is not possible using the openldap software
but is possible with other vendor's implementations?

Correct, OpenLDAP does not support dynamic changes of its schema. However this is supported in iPlanet, Novell eDirectory, IBM SecureWay Directory and (but not through changes to the subschemaSubentry) Microsoft Active Directory.
