for ssh to work there has to exist UNIX account with the same name as
SAMBA account. this is samba default and samba can't operate without
unix account with the same username.

what is happening is that your UNIX account has no password set (or the
password is different from the SAMBA password. to sync samba and unix
passwords there is a setting in smb.conf unix password sync = yes

have a look at the logs (it will be in syslog or auth.log depending on
your syslog configuration) this will tell you more.

furthermore, this is not a ldap issue (you can expect the same behaviour
with tdbsam or smbpasswd backend) and best is to ask at samba lists.
