weird, what do you intend to use LDAP for ?
this question seems to me like "i am new to guns. do i need a club to 
kill someone?"

no, you don't need /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow when using LDAP (you 
might even want to throw it away, but rather not. if your ldap-server 
fails, against whom do you want to authenticate then ?)
