WPA2 Client Authentication using Radius and remote LDAP server

EAP comes in many forms but I imagine you are using MSCHAP which is a hash of the real password.
Both sides (server and client) compare their hashes for authentication so the plain-text password is never transferred across the network.
The password stored in active directory is also hashed. MSCHAP is similar in hashing principle to NTLM so the hashes can be compared between server and AD.
MSCHAP is massively flawed though and passwords can be worked out in 24hrs no matter the size or complexity, and LDAP does not encrypt the data when set to use EAP-MSCHAP.
You could try PEAP or TTLS but only Windows natively supports PEAP, leaving OSX with only MSCHAP and neither with TTLS. The better option is to use client certificate authentication.
