Why don't transfer the additional attributes to the migrated AD and have 
only one LDAP (AD)?

Just write a small script, that runs all accounts in your new AD, 
searching the user in your openLDAP and retrieves the required 
attributes and write them with ldapmodify to AD. I did that when we 
switched to AD for about 150 accounts. And now I can change everything 
on one place with ADUC.
