You might try not using an ldaps connection if your LDAP server allows it. 
Comment out all the TLS in the ldap section. This TLS/SSL connection to your 
LDAP server is a separate issue from 802.1x. That's just between the RADIUS 
server and LDAP. Once you've got everything else going, go back and work with 
the ldaps. 

The main thing is to change only one thing at a time. Then you'll know exactly 
what broke it and what didn't. I believe you had LDAP working before, didn't
