Few questions:

- are you using bdb/hdb or ldbm?

- did you run slapindex as root while your slapd runs as a regular user?

You should be able to recover by slapcat'ting the database (the entry should no longer be there) and slapadd'ing the resulting file.  Make sure permissions and ownership are correct before restarting the database.  And upgrade: OpenLDAP 2.3.43 is available (and 2.4.11).
