I don't know if you can do that with an sql string or where clause in 
ogrinfo, but you could use grep to remove all ogrinfo output that 
contained the word LINESTRING, e.g.:

ogrinfo myfile.shp -al | grep LINESTRING -v

I also sometimes use a tool called dbview to look at data in dbf files. 
  Maybe those ideas help.
