I've written a very basic TCP-Server based on libevent. Now I would like to test the Server.

Is there a tool which generates a lot of connections so that I can check how much concurrent connections the server can handle?

Usually, I'd use iperf for something like this. On ArchLinux's repositories, I found tcpperf, which seems to originate from here -- looks a bit dated, YMMV.
