I had a similar problem and it was resolved after creating the needed
auth_file in my pam-directory:
I use pam_ldap for imap and i created a file imap in /etc/pam.d which
auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_ldap.so
account sufficient /lib/security/pam_ldap.so
There are a lot more possibilites in a pam-file but I don't know/need
I hope it helps.
