Appreciated. I tried to google for this information but could not find it.

Ok well it looks like I needed the -x operation for plaintext authentication which seems to be working ok.

Here is the command I am using now:
%> ldapmodify -v -x -f .UID2SID/modify-06.23.2008-mclame.ldif -h domain -D username -w password

Here is the ldif file:
dn: CN=mclame mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain
changetype: modrdn
newrdn: CN=mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain
deleteoldrdn: 1

And here is the error I am recieving:
ldap_initialize( ldap://domain )
modifying rdn of entry "CN=mclame mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain"
new RDN: "CN=mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain" (do not keep existing values)
rename completed
ldapmodify: Naming violation (64)
additional info: 00000057: LdapErr: DSID-0C090987, comment: Error in attribute conversion operation, data 0, vece

Any assistance is appreciated.

I am not sure why this is but if anyone could give me some pointers on the ldapmodify command I would appreciate it.

Look at the LDIF modification examples in RFC 2849.

The contents of the modify-06.19.2008-mclame.ldif
dn: CN=mclame mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com
changetype: modify
modify: dn cn msSFUName unixHomeDirectory msSFUHomeDirectory uidNumber gidNumber loginShell

There is no basis in LDIF for this last line that I know of.

dn: CN=mclame,CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com

This is not how you change the dn of an entry. Read about "changetype: modrdn".

cn: mclame
cn: mclame

What is the point of having duplicate values here?

msSFUName: mclame
unixHomeDirectory: /home/mclame
msSFUHomeDirectory: /home/mclame

Again, you probably need to spend some quality time with RFC 2849 and any other resources you have on LDIF.
