Chances are that a rather standard ACL blocks anyone from reading the
userPassword attribute. Try doing an ldapsearch while authenticated as
your admin user instead.
Also, the command "slapcat" (run as root or as the openldap user
account) will give you a complete dump of the database, with no access
lists filtering out certain information.
Please take the time to read the slapd.conf configuration file, pretty
much is documented there (including the ACLs).
