I had to do something similar one of these days with a 2.0.x installation.
But in that case, slapcat didn't work, it looped when the corrupted entry
was found. In my case, the only tool that worked to perform a dump-like
operation was ldapsearch, it didn't choked on the corrupted entry and
seemed to get me the whole database intact. I then also removed the old
database files and reinserted the ldif file obtained via ldapsearch.
