The LDAP problem:

There should be a manager account, which is also defined in the 
/etc/openldap/slapd.conf otherwise you need to create one.
The manager account is used to add accounts for users and workstation to 
the ldap database.

The connection problem:
Have you tried to turnoff all the workstations restart samba and see 
whether they still won't connect?
E.g. try add a computer to the domain and see whether this is possible 
or not.
Has the output from the logs changed since ldap got up and running? is 
there any erros when smb and nmb is restartet e.g. like can't bind to ldap.
