I am looking for a method to capture Probe Request Frames through a linux based wireless access point (Ubiquiti Airmax).

Is there a way I could do this through CLI?

Correction - TCPDUMP is available.

Can anyone suggest an appropriate filter for Probe requests and responses?

There are build-in filters for probe-req and probe-resp in tcpdump. I am not sure if the one in your distro supports it since it may vary. You would need to check with the vendor.
