While OpenLDAP Software contains so function specifically
designed to push directory data into other (non-OpenLDAP)
LDAP servers, one might be able to accomplish this using

If you were interested in attempting this, I would suggest
you first experiment with use of slurpd(8)
between two slapd(8) instances, replicating only the
attributes you intend to push to the other LDAP server.
After accomplishing this, changing slurpd(8) to push
to the other LDAP server should be a matter of changing
the provider's configuration.
