You need to set the Phase 2 auth, as has already been said.

This is not using EAP.

The password you get from LDAP is hashed with ssha. That means the
only option you can use for the Phase2 auth is "PAP".

You'll need to move "ldap" from the outer (sites-enabled/default)
to the inner (sites-enabled/inner-tunnel) as well.
