This is a limitation in LDAP (not in OpenLDAP but every implementation), it's not an ACL issue. Some LDAP clients may offer ways to work around this but it looks like phpLDAPadmin does not.

I guess, you (the OP) try to automatically "convert" LDAP addressbook
entries created by Thunderbird to addressbook entries as used by
Evolution. This will not work.

Maybe you can use Thunderbird to export all your existing addressbook
entries to VCARD or similar standard format, then remove all addressbook
entries from your LDAP server, and use Evolution to import the VCARDs
and store them as "new" entries in LDAP...
