If it is just ASCII coordinates that you are trying to reproject, I
would suggest that you try cs2cs, which is part of Proj4

ogr2ogr is looking for a spatial field, or object, in the table, like
the .shp file of a shapefile or the .map file of a MapInfo TAB file. A
CSV list of coordinates is just a list, and as such does not have a
spatial object or field. cs2cs would be a more appropriate tool.
