Hard to say without seeing the symptoms progressing to that. Too much or too little water can cause leaf drop in oleanders. Water deeply but let it get a little dry in between waterings. Keeping the soil damp or soggy at all times could cause leaf loss. Also look for honeydew and sooty mold in leaves infected by pests such as aphids.
