Did you escape the newlines? If you cut-n-pasted from the
org-export-as-latex-batch help, you fell into the trap :-) Maybe the
documentation of the function could be changed to add the backslashes?

The following script (I call it org-to-latex) works fine on linux:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#! /bin/bash

emacs   --batch \
        --load=$orglib/org.elc \
        --eval "(setq org-export-headline-levels 2)" \
        --visit=$1 --funcall org-export-as-latex-batch
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

You can add a loop in it too - or do the loop by hand:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
for x in *.org
        org-to-latex $x
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
