I'm facing a similar problem. I've migrated an old NIS server (yeah,
believe me they still exist) to OpenLDAP. The passwords are encrypted
using the old crypt() function. I was hitting my head against the wall
to try to figure a way to make md5 mechanism to work using like you,
but I believe there is no way. It will work only if the password
stored in md5, IMHO.

Could some one confirm this?
