Your directory structure contains only two attributes for each user..?

Cyrus is not the problem - your ldap configuration apparently is. 
Reconfigure your schema such that you have something to filter on for 
real accounts. Depending on your setup, you could filter on maildrop 
(which, again, depends on your setup and whether or not you use the 
maildrop attribute and, if you do, if it is only populated for 'real' 
accounts). Then you could use something akin to:

ldap_filter: (maildrop=%U@%r)
