Please take a look at VMware KB: ESXi/ESX 4.x and ESXi 5.x shutdown and reboot commands for the different options.

While I was replying "Andre" responded already. ESXi host can be shutdown from SSH.

If you want to shutdown ESXi host, then you can refer the KB that is given in above response.

I know it sounds obvious, but always make sure the host is in Maintenance Mode before rebooting or shutting down via ssh.  I have a post on my blog that shows how.
