Can someone tell me which api's to call
for connecting to an LDAP server over SSL/TLS?

To connect to an LDAPS port, ie. a directory server that supports LDAP over SSL, use ldap_initialize with an ldaps URI.
To make use TLS as specified in RFC2830, connect to the LDAP server with LDAP_VERSION set to 3 and then issue the START_TLS extended request.

See ldapsearch for source code.
