Yep,  computing an M$-CHAPv2 hash requires a clear-text password,  so
either change the slapd.conf to use {CLEAR} as the userpassword encoding
or do CHAPv2 via WindBind/Samba which keeps an NT hash around which will
work also.  I'm entirely certain you cannot do M$-CHAPv2 from a
traditional crypt.

The only role OpenLDAP plays here is how it crypts the password and to
make sure that mechanism is compatible with generating a CHAP hash.
