Try ktracing or trussing the login process; maybe it's trying to do
something a jailed root user can't do, and the pam stuff isn't checking
for it because it doesn't expect it to ever fail?

I've used pam_ldap to authenticate to a Novell server, but have never
tried it in a jail.  You might want to try that if you can't get
pam_ascauth working.
