TLS_CACERT must be the certificate from a ROOT Certificate Authority or
a Certificate Authority certification signed by a known parent CA. CA
means "Certificate Authority". There can be multiple levels of
Every certificate has an Issuer (Certificate Authority) which signed the
certificate, and, a Subject whose public key and other data is signed
by the CA. If the certificate has the correct attributes, then, it
used to sign subordinate certificates.
A certificate which has the same issuer and subject is a ROOT
because there is no parent certificate.
You might want to check if there is also a TLS_CACERTDIR directive
or similar which could still allow the client to locate the CA

You must have your root CA -> selfsigned after you create
- CA and key for your LDAP server
- CA anad key for client
both CA(client,server) you must sign by your CA root certificate
