Your initial mail does not show a 'ppolicy_default' in slapd.conf.  I believe you need to create a default ppolicy entry in LDAP, and specify it in slapd.conf:

# Password Policy
overlay ppolicy
ppolicy_default "cn=default,ou=ppolicy,dc=local"

Without the default, or if you want a user to use something other than default, you'll need to manually set the pwdPolicySubentry for the user.  In you  case:

dn: uid=lcaron_99,ou=People,dc=local
changetype: modify
replace: pwdPolicySubentry
pwdPolicySubentry: cn=lcaron_99,ou=ppolicy,dc=local
