Pretty simple to do that. Need userid/name, or user-specific in the csv.
See below, from this site:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/ITCG/thread/dd9821b9-9c49-4d93-b5af-c79f927d724c/


# Specify target OU.
$TargetOU = "ou=NewUsers,ou=West,dc=MyDomain,dc=com"

# Read user sAMAccountNames from csv file (field labeled "Name").
Import-Csv -Path Users.csv | ForEach-Object {
    # Retrieve DN of User.
    $UserDN = (Get-ADUser -Identity $_.Name).distinguishedName

    # Move user to target OU.
    Move-ADObject -Identity $UserDN -TargetPath $TargetOU
}
