The version of OpenLDAP in Debian, and presumably therefore in Ubuntu, is
built with --enable-backends=mod, which means that all backends (except
ldbm where applicable) are built as modules.  This definitely should
include the SQL backend.  Did you forget to load the SQL module before
trying to use it, perhaps?
