1) the Access-Request contains "53986067" as the User-Name
2) the ldap module is configured to use "uid=%{User-Name}"

  This is all shown in the debug output.

  So... edit the ldap module configuration to use "cn=%{User-Name}"
instead of "uid".   There's a reason the configuration files are text:
they can be edited.
