They are very similar error messages. If you look through the code in the
section that pertains to your authentication method, you can look for the
macros like LDAP_INAPPROPRIATE_AUTH.  For example, in SASL:

  malformed DN given with -X
  requested encryption style is too weak
  asking to SASL authz to a DN to which you're no allowed
  asking to SASL authz to a DN which is not on the server

  missing or malformed credentials
