If you are on a unix machine (Mac, PC with Ubuntu, etc) you could do that by issuing the following command in a terminal window:

	find . -name \*.ly -print | xargs -n 1 convert-ly -e

There is also a (possibly free) package for use on Windows machines called Cygwin.  It is possible that the above command would work on a Windows machine with Cygwin in a command window.

If you're going to use xargs, be careful of .ly files containing whitespace in the filename.  The GNU implementations of find and xargs support an option for that:

find . -name \*.ly -print0 | xargs -0 -n 1 convert-ly -e
