I use dovecot with qmail-ldap. I have both shell and virtual users. Here 
is how I solved the problem:

uid is the username.
mailMessageStore is the location of the Maildir.
homeDirectory is the directory before the Maildir.

So for a shell user:

uid: shelluser
homeDirectory: /home/shelluser
mailMessageStore: /home/shelluser/Maildir/

For virtual:

uid: virtuser
homeDirectory: /home/vmail/virtuser
mailMessageStore: /home/vmail/virtuser/Maildir/

The I can use the regular home directory based definition for
