Hi ,

It's not like that other tools are used openssl is the most enriched and
hardly miss any available cipher suite.

The issue with your configuration is clear from the confirmation itself
          private_key_file = "/etc/raddb/certs/server.pem"
         certificate_file = "/etc/raddb/certs/server.pem"

You have used server.pem as certificate as well as private key . It seems
to be certificate file so doesn't contain private key this is the reason of
non readability of private key
