Is this normal behavior? Is there a way to purge the database files?

Yes, this is normal. Like most database software, when you delete data, it writes it with empty space so that it can re-use it when you create new data. If believe that data is forever gone, I suggest slapcat then slapadd to resize the DB.

You don't say what OpenLDAP version or replication method you are using, so the rest of your question about syncing is rather difficult to have an opinion on.
