Connection to slapd on localhost

Is there a way to connect to slapd via a local socket?  Not via an ip
address?  To be more precise, does slapd offer a way to connect to it
like that of MySQL's "/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock" (or, /tmp/mysql.sock)
connection option?

We have an application that queries/searches LDAP and it runs on the
same system as slapd.  I would prefer not to use a TCP connection for
the ldap lookup since this can be a lot of lookups.

If the answer is obvious, I've totally missed it.
Thanks for your time and thoughts.
