 2>&1 /dev/null

I don't think you tried this, as there are still two errors lurking:
there is a missing redirection, and the ordering is wrong.  This
version does what the original poster asked for.

    DEBUG=">/dev/null 2>&1"
    eval rpm -e director-db $DEBUG

In passing, I will point out that in my experience tossing away
standard error is evil.  Of course, it's fine for a one-off, but if
this is going into a script, or a cron entry I strongly recommend
taking the extra time to record the unwanted output somewhere.
