  That won't make WPA work.  WPA requires a whole bunch of data
exchange before all the machines involved believe that net access has
been granted.

  You have to configure users, passwords, and certificates for it to work.

  They're for VLAN assignment.  You don't need them.

   That's what the debug log shows, too.

  I'm a little surprised that the AP is sending the Access-Request
back to the server.  Since you've configured the server to do
something the AP doesn't expect, I guess you're in an untested area of
its behavior.
