You might ask on a list supporting the particular client you
are using how to configure this client to secure LDAP with TLS

If the client doesn't support securing LDAP with TLS (SSL),
either by using ldaps:// or by using ldap:// with Start TLS,
there is nothing the server can do to change that.   You
can configure the server to support ldap:// on port 636 instead
of ldaps:// if you want, but I don't recommend doing so.
