would like the slave to get in sync with master when
it is restarted; if any changes were made on master
while it is down. Do I need to use syncrepl?  Can I
use both syncrepl and slurpd? Please advice!

If this is the case, then your installation isn't working correctly, as change in the master should always be pushed to a slave, even if it was offline for a period of time. Sadly, you do not state what version of OpenLDAP you are using, so it is impossible to know if you are referencing a problem that was already fixed in a later release.
