No, your files are gdbm. Your Openldap backend type is ldbm.

I am not sure about RH9, but all the other RH releases I have tried have
~ database-specific versions of slapcat etc. So, you should be able to
run slapcat-gdbm to dump the ldif from your gdbm files, and then you
can slapadd them back.
BTW, backups to tape would probably best be done as LDIF's ...
