It should be possible, but as Michael says, you have not
provided enough information. You should post the full set of
ACLs and enough of the DIT so that people can understand what
you are doing. You should also post the exact commands you
use for testing, and the output from them.

You will find examples of how to delegate control to
specific users in my paper "Writing Access Control Policies
for LDAP":
