You mean the directory is literally named
c:\tolvendev\tolven\${tolven.home}\tolvenClient including the $ and the
{ and } characters?  Or do you mean the directory exists if you mentally
replace ${tolven.home} with some other value?

For some reason Ant wants to use a basedir containing a property with a
value it doesn't know and thus cannot expand.  Please note that
<project>'s basedir attribute is expanded before any task is run, so you
cannot refer to any properties except those defined on the command line
via -D or -propertfile (or Eclipse's equivalent whatever that is) or
system properties.
