Assuming you mean simple bind the answer is no. According to
RFC 4511 the name in a BindRequest is a DN. Using the UPN as
name is a proprietary violation of LDAPv3 in MS AD.

Or do I have to use the rwm-overlay to map
the bind-string to a valid DN?
Not sure whether that would work.
It would work if you used "mail=user@domain.com", as it complies
with DN syntax.
Ok, I thought about that, but if you have some silly applications
where you can't compose the connect-string for the bind it would
be rather nice if one can configure the OpenLDAP tu user this upn
Which applications? Something very AD-specific?

Not really, but the bind-DN is always composed as <user>@<domain>

So please don't call it bind-DN, as it is not a DN.
