Sure, you can quite easily make a template ldif file, then call 

sed -e "s/%USERNAME%/$user/g" template.ldif >> import.ldif

or similar, then use ldapadd to add the ldif file.

Almost none of this is actually related to OpenLDAP, it's mostly a scripting 
problem, and for that you need to consult a forum for your preferred 
scripting language (whether that be shell + OpenLDAP utilities, or perl, 
python, ruby etc.).
