The LDAP support in sudo has to do with putting sudoers information
in LDAP.  It is not related to password authentication using LDAP.
For that you'll need to make sure PAM is setup properly.

What operating system are you running and what arguments did you
pass to configure?  Also the output of:

    sudo -V | grep method

run as root would be useful.
