We have N way master openldap replication with hdb backend for the data.
Now we would like to slapcat the data from this cluster and slapadd to
another cluster which is backed by bdb.

Both back-hdb and back-bdb (which both use BDB underneath) are deprecated backends.  You should not be using either one.  Instead, examine migrating to back-mdb, which is backed by LMDB: <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_Memory-Mapped_Database>

Regardless, LDIF exports are usable regardless of backend (bdb, hdb, mdb). The "DIF" stands for "Data Interchange Format".  You might be best served by first learning more about LDIF: <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LDAP_Data_Interchange_Format>
