I do not think that this is a upstream problem.

I have set up a OpenLDAP server on the following system types compiled
from pkgsrc 2018Q4:

OpenSSL 1.0.2k  26 Jan 2017
ldapsearch: @(#) $OpenLDAP: ldapsearch 2.4.23 $
        (LDAP library: OpenLDAP 20439)

NetBSD - 9.0_BETA (upgraded system from 8.0_STABLE)
OpenSSL 1.1.1c  28 May 2019
ldapsearch: @(#) $OpenLDAP: ldapsearch 2.4.23 $
        (LDAP library: OpenLDAP 20439)
(from the installed 8.0_STABLE 2018Q4 pkgsrc packages)
ldapsearch: @(#) $OpenLDAP: ldapsearch 2.4.47 (Feb 13 2019 05:07:27) $
        (LDAP library: OpenLDAP 20447)

A 389DS system was set up and configured on this system:

CentOS 7.6.1810 - 3.10.0-957.27.2.el7.x86_64
OpenSSL 1.0.2k-fips  26 Jan 2017
openldap-clients.x86_64                 2.4.44-21.el7_6                @updates 

In addition to testing from all of the above systems, I tested the
ldapsearch client from the following:

ArchLinux - 5.2.6-arch1-1-ARCH
OpenSSL 1.1.1c  28 May 2019
openldap 2.4.47-3

FreeBSD - 12.0-RELEASE
OpenSSL 1.1.1a-freebsd  20 Nov 2018

NetBSD - 8.99.23
OpenSSL 1.1.0h  27 Mar 2018
ldapsearch: @(#) $OpenLDAP: ldapsearch 2.4.23 $
        (LDAP library: OpenLDAP 20439)

In ALL cases a recent NetBSD-current ( or NetBSD
9.0_BETA will fail to perform an ldapsearch via TLS to either a OpenLDAP
server or a 389DS server when using the base OS ldapsearch binary.  In
all other cases, every other system of every other type works fine.  In
addition the NetBSD 9.0_BETA system will work fine too if it uses
ldapsearch from in installed pkgsrc that was present on the system.  In
that case, /usr/pkg/bin/ldapsearch was from the 8.0_STABLE era and is
compiled against which is still present on the system.
To mess with ones mind even more, openssl s_client works just fine on
9.0_BETA, it is just the base OS ldapsearch does not (and neither does
pam_ldap or nss_ldap).

I think that this ruled out everything but the situation where the base
ldap client code is too old (but compiled anyway) for the openssl
present in the base OS.

What I am unable to try right now is a pkgsrc openldap-client (which may
be a newer ldap client) compiled against 9.0_BETA or -current.  This
would eliminate the ldap client code from the base OS, but would use the
newer openssl.

Further in all cases, proper certificates were obtained from Let's
Encrypt and the needed CA anchors were put into place in the OSs as
needed.  All system pass the openssl s_client test and validate the
certificate chain (as is required by OpenLDAP client code) without any
special flags to openssl s_client.
