Here's the section of your debug where the problem lies.

note this line: 
>rlm_ldap: cn=directory manager bind to failed: Can't
>contact LDAP server

Have you double checked the IP address?

I'm not sure on how descriptive the error messages are -- perhaps double
check that the admin user/password also works -- start by making it the
full dn of the admin user in the 'identity' field.

If you this doesn't work, let me know and we can go from there...
