If I'm looking to simulate a flow over a pitching airfoil at a Reynolds number of 50,000 without modeling turbulence, are icoDyMFoam and pimpleDyMFoam effectively the same solver?

Well without turbulence then icoDyMFoam should be used.

It never gets easier You just get Better

I am new to OpenFOAM, but shouldn't that be the same if the simulationType is set to laminar in the turbulenceProperties file for pimpleDyMFoam ?
