Just be aware that if your passwords are SHA-512 you're limiting
wireless authentication to something that involves PAP (e.g.
EAP/TTLS-PAP), which e.g Windows<8.0 doesn't support natively.

Then you're down to something like Arran suggested

in inner-tunnel authorize:

update control {
  SHA2-Password := "%{sql:SELECT password FROM table WHERE ...}"
