mput doesn't seem to be an sftp command. Maybe you were thinking of
lftp? But lftp's mput command doesn't appear to do recursion. lftp has
a reverse mirror command "mirror -R" which looks like it will do the
job. You can connect to an sftp server with lftp using a command like
lftp sftp://username@host/path/to/dir

Another alternative would be to use rsync e.g.
rsync -aiz files username@host:/path/to/dir
