It would be much easier if virtual users also went to 
/home/vmail/mailstore/$user/Maildir. Then you could simply have:

default_mail_env = maildir:%h/Maildir

But if you really don't want the Maildir there, then you'll have to 
make LDAP return "mail" environment separately for each user. Modify 
user_attrs in dovecot-ldap.conf and add the field in LDAP.

The LDAP code probably should be changed so that you could set default 
values for some fields. Then this would also have been easier.
