By updating userPassword, as covered in point (2) in my previous reply. See

I provide a more complete script below.

ldapsearch -LLL "(&(userPassword=*)(!(pwdChangedTime=*)))" userPassword|perl -
p0e 's/\n(userPassword:)/\nreplace: userPassword\n$1/g'|ldapmodify

Now, if you only have simple binds working, then you would need to do it this 

read -p 'Enter Root DN: ' ROOTDN
read -s -p 'Enter Root DN Password: ' ROOTPW

ldapsearch -x -D "$ROOTDN"  -w "$ROOTPW" -LLL "(&(userPassword=*)(!
(pwdChangedTime=*)))" userPassword|perl -p0e 's/\n(userPassword:)/\nreplace: 
userPassword\n$1/g'|ldapmodify -x -D "$ROOTDN" -w "$ROOTPW"

However, if you don't yet know how to use ldapmodify and ldapsearch, you 
really should try and learn ...
