There is eDirectory support in the rlm_ldap module which (I belive) does 
a "special" query to get a the "universal password); see the docs for 

But you (or rather the FreeRadius bind DN) *will* need permissions to 
read the plaintext password or you're stuck. You need that password or 
the NT/LM hash to do PEAP/MS-CHAP.
