I'm not all that familiar with editing ldap entries from the command

You have to type Ctrl-D (the EOF character) to tell ldapmodify you are done. Also, your modify command must be followed by a blank line, so after the last character input, type Enter, Enter, then Ctrl-D. After typing the second Enter, you should see some feedback about your operation from ldapmodify.
Also, I find it much easier to create a file and use the -f option to point to it. Typos aren't such a big deal then and you don't have to remember it's ^D to complete the input :)
