Encrypted Passwords

It's nice of web servers to get users'  logins and passwords, but I need to
authenticate the password in my application (not through the server) to LDAP.
Question is, if the web server is encrypting the password, (it looks like
"{crypt}87dfhak//4s") how can I pass that string to openLDAP, or must I
decrypt it first, or get it in the clear to begin with?
