There isn't a mechanism to do this available in DHCP servers. However, there is hope in the future. Check out http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-dhc-leasequery-03.txt.

For now, it may be server dependent. For example, with the ISC DHCP Server (www.isc.org), you could scan the lease file.

Subject: [dhcwg] Obtaining DHCP lease information


Hello. 
Forgive me if I'm sending this email to the wrong place - I've attempted to find the right place. 
I have a request to build an application that can, among other things, retrieve DHCP lease information from a DHCP server.  That is, to remotely query a DHCP server, and have it return a list of leases and lease times.  I have been able to find no way to do this.  Can anyone tell me if this is possible?
Thanks for your help.
