FreeRADIUS without Universal Password

In a word no.

The Novell password is not stored as an attribute unless Universal
password is enabled. It exists in eDirectory, can be created/modified by
ldap as userpassword but cannot be returned in an ldap search.

Otherwise you'd have to create an attribute and store the password in it
as an nt hash or something and decrypt it to provide it to freeradius.
