ldappasswd in 2.0 is a different beast than the 1.2 tool of the same

The new tool uses a new mechanism which is specifically designed
to divorce the client from having to know password storage specifics.

The slapd has a configuration directive (password-hash) you may use
to specify the hash to use with userPassword storage.  Later versions
of slapd will support other storage mechanisms (e.g. SASLdb and
in-directory SASL secret storage).
