I heard in a movie description this line:

Sharing his perspective, we watch her dip out of view.

The scene shows the character walking away until disappearing out of view. I couldn't find a definition of dip close to "to walk." Did I hear it wrong? I can't think of a similar-sounding word that would fit the context. I am putting the audio clip here (uploaded to an audio sharing site Clyp) for reference.

You heard it correctly, but the relevant definition of dip is:

dip, intransitive verb: to suddenly drop down or out of sight (M-W)

The verb dip is referring to her dropping down out of sight from the perspective of the viewer, rather than her continuing to walk until she's out of sight.
