I experienced the same issue with slapo-ppolicy in effect. I suspect it's
caused if password-hash configuration directive was changed but up to now I
did not dig any deeper.

It helps to have some software at hand which sends an appropriate
ModifyRequest with MOD_REPLACE userPassword attribute value with updated
password hash scheme. After that the Password Modify Extended Operation (like
used by ldappasswd) works again.
