The error message, and the code that issues that error message, seems to 
indicate that pppolicy doesn't allow multiple values for the userPassword 
attribute to exist in an existing entry when the password is changed.

You may want to check how many values are present for userPassword on 
cn=username,dc=domain,dc=tld, and if there are multiple values, remove all or 
all but one.
