Are you looking for
1. a general solution working remote via LDAP or
2. a solution how to get rid of the data of an OpenLDAP directory tree?

1. won't work well for directories larger than a few dozens of entries.

For 2. simply delete the files in the directory holding this particular database.

Don't you need the brackets and quote the filter argument? Try

ldapdelete -x -h localhost -D"cn=manager,o=mysite,c=US" -W "(objectclass=*)"

Ciao, Michael.
