There is a thread over at thetaobums.com were someone is claiming strongly that only Buddhism with it`s doctrine of dependent origination alows one to reach the highest stage of enlightenment. Can any of you with actual experience of the territory of enlightenment comment on this?

This has been debated like nuts around here. I think the common consensus is that "both are good and both lead to pretty much the same thing, just do it and find out for yourself." Personally I have used both buddhist and advaitist techniques and found both to be of great for various reasons, some of which overlap.
