Chances are that a rather standard ACL blocks anyone from reading the
userPassword attribute. Try doing an ldapsearch while authenticated as your
admin user instead.
Also, the command "slapcat" (run as root or as the openldap user account)
will give you a complete dump of the database, with no access lists
filtering out certain information.
Please take the time to read the slapd.conf configuration file, pretty much
is documented there (including the ACLs).
