This may be a very silly question, but have you enabled slapd in /etc/rc.conf?

The startup scripts in /etc/rc.d and /usr/local/etc/rc.d won't run unless the 
associated control variable is set to "YES" in /etc/rc.conf. To find the 
right variable and its current setting,

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/slapd rcvar

which in this case tells us the control variable is $slapd_enable, 
so /etc/rc.conf needs to contain


As a bonus, if this isn't set but you want to do a one-off start or stop (for 
example during testing), you can use onestart and onestop:

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/slapd onestart

which ignores the control variable.
