Yes. But you have to provide a file with a list of the DNs of the
entries to be deleted.
$ ldapdelete -h
usage: ldapdelete [options] [dn]...
dn: list of DNs to delete. If not given, it will be readed from stdin
or from the file specified with "-f file".
(You could also use some of the GUI LDAP clients for that. E.g. my
web2ldap supports recursive deletion of all entries below an entry.)
