I think no additional configuration is needed because the file /etc/nsswitch.conf contains the entry
passwd: files ldap

This will do the trick.

LDAP and authentication mechanism is already configured. But you need to tell this to OpenSSH.

The 1st method suggested is now deprecated
The second solution is usually configured already, so that not a solution
The real problem is usually in the configuration of pam
edit or create file:
/etc/pam.d/sshd
comment out or delete line:
# account required pam_access.so
This removes the requirement that the user should have a local account.
The above line is usually present in systems installed via kickstart
