What you could do is redirect the user to an error page implemented as
CGI-BIN which makes further checks. You can do that yourself.

But, ideally I would like to send the user to the right page (not a generic "authorization failed"), in which case I need a different error code to send them to a suitable error page (which might have a form for them to change their password etc.).

You could redirect them always to the not-autorized-URL and the CGI-BIN handler behind that retrys the LDAP bind together with ppolicy control reacting according to the ppolicy control values in the bind response.

Just a rough idea though...not sure how to reliably pass the username/password to the not-autorized-URL. Let's think about it...
