I know that others have mentioned phpLDAPadmin, which I have used and 
quite like, but I recently found another tool that is not web based that 
I quite like as well.  I had a need for a non-php tool recently and I 
discovered JXplorer (http://www.jxplorer.org).  It is a java app that 
works on numerous platforms and it has the ability to create custom 
"templates" for various LDAP classes using HTML.  I've used it to make a 
very simple centralized address book that my wife can understand and 
it's worked quite well.
