You're not specifying an LDAP server in the map specification, so the
lookup module is assuming that you've set a default somewhere.

OpenLDAP lets you set a default server in /etc/openldap/ldap.conf using
the HOST configuration option, but it looks like you don't have one set
there, so the lookup module doesn't know which server to connect to.

You'll either need to set one in ldap.conf, or (as Philip has noted)
