It is not possible to configure Directory service Event log size by Group policy.

You can define the size via registry

Key path: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\< Log-name >]

Value: MaxSize
REG_DWORD
      
0x10000–0xFFFF0000 ( bytes, in 64 KB increments ) (64 KB–4 GB)
      
0x80000 ( 512 KB )

 You may create a custom ADM file and add it to the Computer Configuration--->Administrative Template to modify this value to achieve it.
