Sack, the answer will really depend of your goals and network design, I think you would rather check out the white papers from Cisco about DMVPN and scalability and design:

Re: Routing protocol option in DMPVPN

The main advantage of OSPF is that its based on open standards, so if you decide to migrate to some other vendor you would not be stuck with a proprietary technology (eigrp). However Cisco recommends EIGRP for DMVPN, see pg 2-9 on the below PDF:
