If your question is "can I make use of the same database files", the answer
is no.

You will need to shutdown your 2.0.X directory server, use the 2.0.X slapcat
to dump your database to a file, clear out your database, use the 2.1.X
slapadd to recreate the database from that file, and then start your 2.1.X
directory server.  

It's not difficult, but possibly very time consuming if your directory is
extremely large.
