The problem here is not with your LDIF, but the fact
that your file doesn't include a value of the
appropriate syntax for the attribute.  That's
what the error means.  The value of userCertificate,
which must always be transferred using ;binary
(e.g., BER), is a X.509 user certificate.
See RFC 2252/2256.
