What is the command line you are using with ldapsearch?
You need to specify -Z to start TLS and use certs.
From man ldapsearch:
-Z Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer
Security) extended operation. If
you use -ZZ, the command will require the operation to be successful.
Give it a try.

Maybe the root certificate is installed with OpenSSL's default certs.
Those are used if and only if you specify TLS_CACERT - or TLS_CACERTDIR
I presume, but I haven't tested that. See:
