Assuming you want to rename the directories as well as the files:
find /path/to/folder -print | while read x ; do
mv $x $(echo $x | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z')
... should do the trick. If you don't want to rename the directories,
things are a little trickier; you'll have to pass the filename part
to tr, not the directory part:
find /path/to/folder -type f -print | while read x ; do
mv $x $(dirname $x)/$(basename $x | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z')
