You don't have the userPassword mapped in /etc/raddb/ldap.attrmap

But even if you did, ldap has this:

userPassword:: e1NIQX13ak83dXhlS3FYR0NFVlhPTEVzVUo4OW9DWFE9

and the request has this:

User-Password = "password"

They aren't the same are they? The LDAP entry looks like a hash, you'll 
have to figure out which kind. Note it does not contain a {hash} prefix 
so FreeRADIUS can't figure what kind of hash it is. You'll have to force 
that with the right radius attribute for userPassword in ldap.attrmap.

But you better look at this:

and understand the consequences.
