I have been growing a cyclamen indoors for about 6 years. Until recently, it has grown beautifully. i had 6 new leaves sprout and grow, but not fully. they eventually wilted, and died. Is the plant dead or dormant? Is there anything I can do?

If you grew it for six years, that is amazing. It may have finally worn out.
I don't think it's dormant. Watering of this plant should only be done when the soil has dried out, and care should be taken to water around the edges, not directly into the crown of the plant.
Too much water can lead to root rot. Cyclamen also need a cool growing environment. Here's an article on how to care for cyclamen:
