I have purchased Microsoft LYNC 2013 server, including basic and enterprise CALs.  I have installed  the server in a test environment, but I can't find the basic/enterprise clients to install.  

Also, I have created a new OU in my 2008 R2 Active Directory (test environment), but on my LYNC server, I cant find the users in this new OU, however, I can see users in the USERS OU.

I will appreciate it if someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.

I hope I have understood you correctly.
Lync basic clients you can get here:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=35451
http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=35450

Full client is a part of office pro Plus and it is also available as standalone product, but it has to be licensed separately.

For OU problem i'm not sure.

Please take a look at licensing Lync 2013:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/lync/microsoft-lync-licensing-overview-lync-for-multiple-users-FX103789668.aspx

At the end you have also link to download pricing and licensing guide.

Basically you need to buy at "server side":
- buy server license, which allows you to install the server
- buy users CALs depending on needed functionality (standard, enterprise, plus CALs) - that just allows users to connect to Lync

At the users side you need clients.
- You can use Lync basic client downloadable at no charge. (links posted in my previous post)
- You can buy Office 2013 Pro Plus, which includes "full" Lync client or you can buy it as standalone.
For standalone option I'm not 100% sure, but it should be available for download at VLSC.

I have purchased Office 2013 Standard, so I guess my only choice is to purchase the standalone client.  Microsoft, they've got you coming and going.  Thanks
