Ok. The tip I gave you was for thys type of auth:

cyrus-imap / or other sasl using app -> ldap
you on the otherhand whant:

someapp using pam -> pam -> ldap 

Then I cannot help you much, but
1. READ the LDAP implementation howto (found at linuxdoc)
2. subscribe to the pam-ldap list
3. Use padls migration tools.

If you are planning to use sasl for storing pwd's, I haven't tried that. Good luck.
