  Yes.  The PAP module supports a wide range of encrypted passwords.

  That is not how RADIUS works.

  The passwords between the NAS and the RADIUS server are already encrypted with the RADIUS shared secret.  The RADIUS server gets a clear-text password in the User-Password attribute.

  How the passwords are stored in the DB (SHA or whatever) is entirely unrelated.
