something like:

ldappasswd -x -D 'cn=Manager,o=jecinc.on.ca' -w "YourAdminPassword" \
-s "NewPasswordForUser" 'uid=Brian,ou=people,o=jecinc.on.ca'

should work.

Hope that helps

To announce that there must be no criticism of the president,
or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not
only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to
the American public.  - Theodore Roosevelt
