In Xen 1.2 you can use the xc_dom_control script:
 xc_dom_control.py shutdown <dom-id>

In Xen 1.3 the scripts aren't completely up to date yet. There's an
old script in tools/examples that should do the trick though:
 destroydom.py <dom-id>

In both cases, if the domain is unresponsive then there is an option
to forcibly kill it.
