You are very unclear by what you mean here.

Your 'home' should still be there. From what I understand only KDE configuration is broken. Meaning, no need (yet) for backups.
By renaming ~.kde/ you should automatically have a new ~.kde/ created like when you log in for the first time.

'kdm' is the first graphical login screen you get after you boot up. I'm not dead sure but I wouldn't be surprised you need 'kdm' to get into KDE.

So maybe, just maybe your killall action did leave a pidfile.
To check start in failsafe mode and look for '/var/run/kdm.pid'.
If it exists, delete that pid file and reboot to see if all works now.

Good luck,
