Usually you just make one of them symbolic link of the other one.
Openldap tools use by default the first one, pam_ldap and nss_ldap use
the second one. Try "man ldap.conf". The file(s) just tell where the ldap
server is and what paramemeters are needed to query it.

Try "man nsswitch.conf". Name Server Switch configuration. Where from libc
tries to find hostnames, userids, passwords etc.
