well, the debug clearly shows these lines:

[chap] login attempt by "ale" with CHAP password
[chap] Cleartext-Password is required for authentication
++[chap] returns invalid
Failed to authenticate the user.
Login incorrect (rlm_chap: Clear text password not available): [ale] (from client 123456 port 0)

so - how have you defined the user 'ale' ? where is their password
stored and how have you stored it (ie what attribute did you give it?)

in the most basic of cases i'd expect to see some reply like

'"ale" is in my users file and the entry looks like

"ale"	Cleartext-Password := "some_random_password"
