I have a syntax error in the following and clause.

I am trying to say where OrderDateTime is >= '2014-01-01' and OrderDateTime < '2015-01-01'


(dbo.OeOrders.OrderDateTime >= "'"+YEAR(getdate())-1 + '-01-01' AND      dbo.OeOrders.OrderDateTime < "'"+YEAR(getdate()) +'-01-01')

(dbo.OeOrders.OrderDateTime >= CAST(YEAR(getdate())-1 AS varchar(4)) + '0101' AND
 dbo.OeOrders.OrderDateTime < CAST(YEAR(getdate()) AS varchar(4)) + '0101'

Format 'YYYYMMDD' is always interpreted correctly, whereas YYYY-MM-DD requires specific date/language settings to work properly.

You could also write:
YEAR(dbo.OeOrders.OrderDateTime) >= YEAR(GETDATE()) - 1
AND YEAR(dbo.OeOrders.OrderDateTime) < YEAR(GETDATE())
