Set auth_debug=yes and see what it logs. passdb ldap should support it,
as long as you don't set auth_bind=yes. I just verified that it works:

Nov 26 16:28:57 auth: Debug: master in: USER	1	tss	service=lda
Nov 26 16:28:57 auth: Debug: ldap(tss): pass search: base=ou=people,dc=example,dc=com scope=subtree filter=(&(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=tss)) fields=uid,userPassword
Nov 26 16:28:57 auth: Debug: ldap(tss): result: uid(user)=tss userPassword(password)=pass
