The fact that you get 49 (invalid credentials) clearly indicates that
the command is failing authentication, so you're not even getting to
password change.  You should check first that you can bind with that
identity, for example using ldapwhoami.  Moreover, invalid credentials i
a rather generic error, it doesn't simply mean the password is wrong, so
you should carefully inspect server logs to see where the problem is
actually occurring.
