Is there an app or a method that I can use from Terminal to convert audio files to the OGG format?
I know about
afconvert but that doesn't provide the
ogg format that I want.

Ogg is a container format. It typically uses the Vorbis audio codec. You can download a static build of
ffmpeg and use the bundled
ffmpeg -i input.wav -c:a libvorbis -qscale:a 5 output.ogg
According to the Vorbis encoding guide, the quality range is from 0–10, where 10 is the highest quality and 3–6 are a good range to try. In the above example we used 5 as quality.
I've come across this question a couple of times, this is what worked for me:
$ ffmpeg -y -i foo.mp3 -strict -2 -acodec vorbis -ac 2 -aq 50 foo.ogg
have a look at sox and ffmpeg they should do it.
ffmpeg -i file.mp3 -acodec ogg file.ogg
i think that was the command i used. not sure used to be a long time ago.
also have a look here why you probably wont do a conversion: https://askubuntu.com/questions/147944/bulk-batch-convert-mp3-files-to-ogg-via-command-line
