So, if the goal is to use certificate-based authentication, then the solution is to generate a proper certificate without any usage restrictions on it, or one that says it can be used for client authentication.

If the goal isn't to use certificate-based authentication, then some of your advice is correct.

It seemed to me that OP was simply trying to establish an encrypted connection, as so many have done in the past and slapd was barfing on a missing client cert.

The error message pretty clearly says the certificate is unsupported. That's quite different from saying the certificate is missing. Ignoring the error message will generally lead you down a lot of dead ends...
