If I remember correctly, it's using self-signed certificates. Try cut'n'paste
this into a terminal as root:
echo "TLS_REQCERT allow" >> /etc/ldap.conf

This will enable your client to work with ldapservers using self-signed

Another thing. The commonName in the server-certificate is maybe
ldap.intern and not just ldap - so contacting the server by hostname
'ldap.intern' might also solve your problem - since you always should contact
the ssl-/tls-enabled server by the (set) of commonName(s) it uses.

You can check any ssl-certificate service by using the utils in OpenSSL.
E.g.: openssl s_client -showcerts <hostname>:<port>  which would print out
all certificates in the certificate-chain the the remote service holds.

The s_client command has other nice options you can play with as well.
