Step back a bit.

As Phil said, what version of FR are you using?

If you're using 2.1.x, then the dictionary should have an attribute
called Cleartext-Password.

If the server doesn't recognize it, you need to:
- check for typos in your config/db entry. just in case
- make SURE you don't break the server (e.g. changing something like
default dictionary location)
- make SURE you use new-enough version. For example, RHEL/Centos5 has
it under the name "freeradius2" package.

pptpd does need some dictionary file modification, but you should make
it so that it uses SEPARATE directory from the one that FR is using.
Do NOT change anything in FR's dictionary directory.

Is that clear enough?
