You do not need to add ssl/tls it is some extra security.
But First try to make sure the ldap server start. is nota n ipadres but a network, i do not know fors ure but
i thougt it need an ipadres like 

But try this one First and look i fit starts.
slapd_flags='-h \"ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fopenldap%2fldapi/
ldap:// ldap://\"'

It will listen on all your ip's available on your system.

If it does still not start then look at the configuration of your
slapd.conf file
