Thanks for the alternate link, Ryan
will see if that ldif example works better.
AFAICT, the line count starts at 1; I have seen similar complaints with importing ldif's, and when I corrected other glitches, it was always on a line number where the line count starts at 1.

Judging by the error message, it looks like the issue is actually with
line 8. Not sure if that's because slapadd uses zero-indexed line
numbers or if it skips blank lines.
I'm not an OpenLDAP expert, so I can't provide any specific
assistance, but I found this document, which might be more up-to-date
than the wiki:
