It seemed to me that OP was simply trying to establish an encrypted
connection, as so many have done in the past and slapd was barfing on a
missing client cert.
The error message pretty clearly says the certificate is unsupported.
That's quite different from saying the certificate is missing. Ignoring
the error message will generally lead you down a lot of dead ends...
