can I do it?

It's not entirely clear to me, but you may be looking for --enable-spasswd
(configure argument) to allow {SASL} password scheme in the userPassword
attribute. Examples (mostly focusing around Kerberos, I believe) are in
the list archives and probably the FAQ-O-Matic.

No, that tells slapd to ask SASL to do a password check, typically using sasldb. He wants to use in-directory SASL secrets, which is the opposite of what you answered.
