I don't think it's a good approach using the root account to run such a simple script.
Maybe it would be better to perform a search operation against the server. The code below might work for you:
ldapsearch -Hldaps://your.server.com -x -b dc=yourDITroot "objectclass=*" dn -D cn=yourRootDN,dc=yourDITroot -W | grep numEntries

Well, I don't know necessarily what the *best* way is, but I can tell you what the simplest way in. As root on whatever server the openLDAP database is on, run this command:
slapcat | grep "^dn: " | wc -l
That will dump the entire ldap database, grab every "dn: ..." line, which every object will have exactly one of, and run it through wc (the word-counter) and tell it to count the number of lines.
