Put encrypted passwords to the source ldif file. The following little
perl script will do the conversion for you (just pipe the ldif file with
unencrypted passwords through it):

perl -ne 'if (/^userPassword:\s+([^{].*)$/i) {print "userPassword: ",`slappasswd -s $1`} else {print $_}'

I do not think any kind of automatic encryption is needed at the server
