As I already replied :

the problem can be that Outlook use SSSVLV controls on attributes
without ordering rules in OpenLDAP. Unfortunately, the 'name'
attribute has no ordering rules,  so you can't sort results on name
(this includes, cn, sn, gn attributes, because they inherit from
name). We do not have this limitation on AD (but it breaks LDAP

You can't use server side sort control on cn or sn in OpenLDAP, this
will always return an error because there is no ordering rule for
these attributes.
