Yes, it is.

Though if you start slapd via some script in /etc/rc.d/, then you should
presumably stop it the same way so rc can keep track of its own magic.

And of course if you have several slapd processes (e.g. while testing)
you'll need to kill the right one.  You can make it write its pid to a
file with the "pidfile" directive in slapd.conf.
