The config files are a bit confusing.
What I found out:
/etc/ldap/ldap.conf is used by the ldap tools (ldapsearch, etc)
/etc/ldap.conf is used by libnss_ldap
/etc/libnss_ldap.conf is not used by ubuntu, but it is used by the libnss_ldap on debian.
I made links that all three files are the same.

I am facing similar problems. Despite a lot of effort I could not get
my LDAP client setup to run on Hardy (it runs smoothly on Dapper on
another machine). First I followed strictly
/etc/libnss-ldap.conf or /etc/libpam-ldap.conf are not generated after
the installation of the packages.
Then I tried to reproduce the Dapper-setup by manually editing
/etc/libnss-ldap.conf and /etc/libpam-ldap.conf. I also commented out
the aforementioned pam_smbpass.so related lines. This also failed,
getent passwd does not work.
I can access the server using ldapsearch -x though. Any help appreciated.

libpam-smbpass is and was not installed. There are no libpam-smbpass
entries in any pam.d files.
To make sure, I installed libpam-smbpass. But no change in the ldap

With ldapsearch or getent I can contact the server without problems.

Exactly the same config under gutsy (7.10) works great.You might check your old auth.log's and see if you find errors like this:
The problem occurs on a hardy upgrade and on a hardy fresh installation.
I compiled and installed openldap 2.4.8 and nss_ldap 260 on my own (with
the default settings)
Now it works perfectly!
Could there be a bug in ldap version 2.4.7-6ubuntu3 of nss_ldap
258-1ubuntu3 (ubuntu hardy)?
PAM unable to dlopen(/lib/security/pam_smbpass.so)
[Can't contact LDAP server]
There have been quite a few issues with some of the pam.d files
referencing pam_smbpass.so. Some have resolved with installing
libpam-smbpass, but it can be resolved by commenting out the
pam_smbpass.so related lines in /etc/pam.d/common-auth and
commenting out the pam_smbpass.so related lines in
/etc/pam.d/common-auth and /etc/pam.d/common-password
