You could (and probably should) do this with a shorter bit. Unless you're just skimming off little bits to finish a cut previously made with a jig or band saw, cutting 1.5" of wood with a router will require a rather beefy router motor. Make a first pass with the bearing riding on your template. Once this pass is complete, lower the router to cut deeper ...

You wouldn't want a 1-1/2" bit in the first place, as that would require absolute precision with both router table depth and technique. You almost always want some buffer with woodworking tools, so a 2" seems ideal anyway.
