Actually, this is the wrong list, but your answer lies in correct

Encrytped passwords should be stored like this in the LDAP server:

userPassword: {type}hash

So for example you would have something like (standard DES crypt):

userPassword: {crypt}H7ala09A.

or (sha1 hash)

userPassword: {sha1}....

or (standard crypt with md5 hash)

userPassword: {crypt}$1$ajs90d98as$lkakaksksjakslsls
