I understand. But my concern is if ssl was not enabled properly, then I
should not be able to use -ZZ or ldaps url in commands like ldapsearch.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
If ssl is enabled already, then I am unable to understand why ldaps doesn't
work from apache point of view.

Apache doesn't know anything about slapd, all it does is, to connect
to a defined port and tries to verify the certificate presented and
establish a secured ldap session. If apache fails to verify the
certificate or is otherwise not able to establish a secured ldap
session it will not connect, unless the configuration allows to
establish an unsecured session.
