I started with LDAP just recently and I successfully built and

required to add "userPasswordAtt" attribute to my custom schema which
is similar to "userPassword" attribute in "inetOrgPerson" schema.
What exactly do you want to achieve?
But with this attribute I can not log in to phpLDAPadmin for example.
Yes, slapd does not know that it should use your custom password attribute.
AFAIK you can't use a custom attribute for password-checking during a bind
request. You could implement something like this on your client-side custom code.
As far as I know "userPassword" is never defined as
password in any
schema, I am suspecting that it has to be somehow hardcoded
Some attribute types are hard-coded in schema_prep.c since they are needed
during boot-strapping a server with dynamic configuration.
