I think you might need to do more than reduce the AP transmit power,
since you would not be reducing the AP receiver sensitivity at the
same time.  It might be better to put a simple divider network between
the antenna and the AP.

You could also try for example simply using a dummy load instead of an
antenna on the APs.
