You could use a computer startup script and deploy this using GPOs.

In the script, you can use a tool like netsh. You will have to test this first, but in general it would look similar to this:

netsh interface ip4 set address name="Local Area Connection" source=DHCP

The tricky part could be the interface name (you can use numbers instead). Also you have to be careful to which machines you deploy this GPO, make sure you really want those to be using DHCP.
If the machines are up and available on the network then you could change them all at once by adapting the scripts from this article.
