Hmm, this could use a mention in the Admin Guide.

I haven't tried it myself, but: In addition to setting up slapd to
use SASL, you must set up SASL to use LDAP.  In Cyrus SASL, that is
described in doc/install.html: Build with LDAP support (the circular
dependency shows up here too), then use the LDAPDB auxprop plugin.
