  I want to restrict login access to some selected client nodes (by default, openldap allows user access to all client nodes). I have googled for this, tried many different configurations like host attribute,hostObject class etc. but failed to get the required.

  How to restrict a user access to some client nodes?

  Please, explain in detail.

It is not clear what you want to do.  You need to provide more details
before you will get the answer that you want.

For example, if you just want to restrict access to the directory from
some nodes, why not use iptables.

If you are talking about restricting login access to some linux nodes
using PAM, this is probably a better question for a PAM list.  Of course,
there will be folks on this list that can answer that question as well,
but not without knowing what you are storing in your directory.
