So, my questions are:

1. How do I get ldapmodify, ldapdelete, ... to follow referrals?

You set up the chain overlay.

That answer glosses over the details.

A better answer is that the OpenLDAP ldapmodify and ldapdelete tools will not follow referrals. If you're working in a setup that uses referrals, and you need the ldapmodify tool to work, then you need to use chaining.

2. Will pam_ldap (when changing passwords) follow referrals?

See answer to #1.
