To delete a folder on disk, use rmdir as per Stephen's answer. Matlab path is irrelevant for this.
To remove a folder from matlab's search path, use rmpath. This does not delete the folder from disk if it exists. If you've also added subfolders to the path, you need to remove each one of these individually. Alternatively, use
pathtool
to add and remove folders through a UI.

rmdir(folderName,'s')
