What ACLs are set? See a basic userPassword-ACL here:

As a beginner try (in one-line)

ldappasswd -x -D "uid=dante,ou=people,dc=kollok,dc=org"

for using simple bind instead of SASL/DIGEST-MD5. You also have to
provide the DN of the entry which password is to be set.

Also read more information about (hashed) passwords:
