I previously used puppet to automate the following:

add a templated cn=config ldif to a host
  (with pre-populated syncrepl config)
add templated database ldifs to a host
run a wrapper to slapadd them all
start slapd

This meant that I could boot a new server and come back in a few hours after syncrepl replication had finished to find a working replica. I presume the same technique will work no matter which configuration management software is in use.

I used slapcat on my existing pre-prod cn=config and databases to get the basic structure which I used to create the templated ldifs.
