I wrote a proof of concept dynacl that essentially does this. The ACL
looked something like:

access to attrs=userPassword
    by dynacl/clientAuth auth

All the dynacl does is determine if there is an authid in the SASL
context. If so, a client certificate was used and access can be granted.

Examples of dynacls can be found in contrib/slapd-modules/acl.
