Do you have a sample LDIF entry so we can see what the password format was before import?

I mean: crypt(3) is implementation dependent, so different
implementations (e.g. the one in libc and the one in openssl's
libcrypto) do not interoperate.

You mean ldapwhoami works for those users __before__ you force the
password change using the manager identity?  If ldapwhoami does, then
ldappasswd must work as well.

No straightforward manner.  You'll need to crack those passwords
(usually trivial with crypt(3)).
