Wireless doesn't use plaintext passwords. It's using the EAP protocol.

And there it is:

For some reason, your FreeRADIUS configuration expects a plaintext
password. That's wrong. And it's not the default shipped configuration.

Maybe you want to read up on EAP authentication. And then revert your
config changes to the point where EAP works out of the box.
