That probably means that you have not included some other schema file
that they depend on. Try something like this:

include         /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/core.schema
include         /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/cosine.schema
include         /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/inetorgperson.schema
include         /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/openldap.schema
include         /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema
include         /usr/local/etc/openldap/schema/misc.schema

And copied that file into the right place?

Is Sendmail actually doing LDAP lookups while handling mail? Try
running slapd with log level 768 and watching the log to see what
queries and results you get.

You will probably get more useful answers if you send your query to a
Sendmail-related list.
