It should be in mysql's bin directory, typically /usr/local/mysql/bin.  You 
either need to add that to your PATH,

   export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/mysql/bin

or use the full path when executing the command

   /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root -p shutdown

I'd recommend the former, and I'd suggest making it permanent by adding that 
to your .bash_profile.

I haven't used the OSX MySQL Administrator, so I can't be sure, but it *may* 
be that it isn't working because of the PATH problem.
