I wasn’t playing peek-a-boo and I didn’t use the phrase “like TLS’, my first question was pretty straightforward. We were just trying to understand if we could use something other than a username/password for the authenticator to authenticate to RADIUS.

If you look at the examples and documentation, there's EAP-TLS.
If the authenticator doesn't support EAP, then it's impossible.
And PLEASE ask good questions. It's frustrating to get told on the THIRD MESSAGE "Oh, something like TLS". Playing "peek a boo" with information is not productive.
