TLS is an option in the LDAP protocol. A 'normal' LDAP connection can
be upgraded with TLS to apply encryption and/or authentication, but it
is quite possible to use the connection without either.

If you want to *require* encryption you need to add security strength
factors to slapd.conf - see the 'security' section of the slapd.conf
