This looks a lot more like pam_ldap than nss-pam-ldap's PAM module. The
nss-pam-ldapd PAM module doesn't have any references to SSL libraries.

What platform is this on? How did you install nss-pam-ldapd? Was it from
source or a binary package?

nss-pam-ldapd does not require LDAPS or StartTLS to be used for the LDAP
connection. Any connection supported by the LDAP library is fine. The
nslcd output also indicates that lookups are working fine.

It is the PAM module that is failing somehow.
