Your map entries don't specify that the maps being referred to are in
the directory server.  By default, a map which doesn't have its type
specified is treated as either a file-based map (if there's a file in
/etc with the map's name) or as a NIS map, regardless of where the
master map entry was stored.

Try changing "auto.home" in your map entry to "ldap:auto.home", and
things should work as you expect them to.
