Given that this HOWTO does not use the vanilla Schema Compatibility settings
(FreeIPA Compat Tree by default uses posixGroup objectclass and memberUid
attribute for user membership), I would check if the groups really have the
right objectclass and uniqueMember generated:

# ldapsearch -D "VSPHERE_DN" -x -w "$VSPHERE_DN_PASSWORD" -b

I expect there will be some problem preventing the LDAP search to succeed. Then
we would know where to look next.
