I had a similar problem some weeks ago. It was solved with some help, but I 
addmit that I don't like it very much.

I had two approaches:

1) Copy the user/passwd to chap/pap-secrets. (Achim idea)

2) Add the user to the dip and adm group. Kppp need to read /var/log/messages 
(Ralf pointed)

Finally it works for me, but manually I had to add the resolv.conf parameters 
of the connexion to the /etc/resolf.conf, because, I didn't had DNS.

I think that is a nighmare to conf kppp in debian.

Regards, and good luck.
