On my system, the entry which directs the server to load the NIS server
plugin is "cn=NIS Server". If you set things up using the tools
provided, I'd have expected yours to look the same, so I can't be sure
you're editing the right entry. Can you paste the LDIF for it?

The relevant section in the server's dse.ldif (and as Rich reiterated,
if you plan on editing the file directly, the server must be stopped
while you edit it) on my system looks like this:
dn: cn=NIS Server,cn=plugins,cn=config
cn: NIS Server
nsslapd-pluginDescription: NIS Server Plugin
creatorsName: cn=directory manager
modifiersName: cn=directory manager
