I think he meant an authservice communicating over ssh with ldap.

Well this is possible... With restrictions I think.
First thing is:
Build an auth service quering your LOCAL! ldap for auth.
Since Ldap might have all information the be_user table grants you will 
have to state "dummy users" for each group you wanna provide.
And then use your auth_service to merge the (configured) dummy-user to 
the user information from ldap. You might even cache such created 
records in a db table.
There are already some ldap auth services:
Probably you might find what your are searching for, but i think it 
would be easy to build up on this, if you have special needs.

Second step would be, "killing" the local ldap, building an stunnel  for 
ldap. So that your typo3 thinks communicating with local ldap, which is 
- in behind - working over ssh-tunneling.

So far
hope that matches your task
