I think that if you are using ldap_auth, there won't be any password in
the TYPO3-tables. The authentication will happen in LDAP: ldap_auth will
try to "bind" as the specific user in LDAP, and if this succeeds, the
user is "authenticated", if not, it is not.

No need to have any password in TYPO3. In fact its potentially not even
possible, as the passwords might be stored crypted/md5ed or in some
other bizarre way in LDAP. Only LDAP itself will know how to
authenticate those users.
