There are different possibilities depending of the openldap-version you're
With openldap-1.2.11 it was possible to use ldappasswd with the -H switch to
determine the password encryption.
With openldap-2.0.11 you have to enter the desired method in slapd.conf

you can for example simply use ldappasswd (1.2.11) like this

echo -n "Username : "
read user

ldappasswd -vvv \
-b "o=xx,c=yy" \
-D "cn=ldapadmin, o=xx, c=yy" \
-H crypt \
-h localhost \
-p 389 \
-t "uid=${user},o=xx,c=xx" \
-w ldapadmin \
-h localhost

hope this helps,
