On a related note, I'm aware that password changing in the Active
Directory cannot be done without an SSL certificate and a secure
conection to the LDAP server. Before we go ahead and buy the
certificate, has anybody tried changing an object's password in Active
Directory using the OpenLdap modules and if so, how successful has it

You don't neet to buy a certificate, you neet to install an Enterprise Certificate Authority (See Knowledge Base Q247078). IIRC you can even use an externally generated certificate.
Article Q269190 now even has some source code how to do this. For working Unix source code see pam_ldap.
