Yes, it looks like it is the issue. The supported cipher suites were
hardened a while ago. The ticket
https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/4395 contains more information.

During the TLS handshake the client sends a list of supported cipher
suites to the server. The server also has a list of supported cipher
suites. But the server never sends this list to the client. Instead it
picks one common cipher suite (usually the most secure) from the common
set of cipher suites.

I don't know if you can get 389 DS to print the cipher suites. But you
can snoop the ciper suites from the TLS handshake with wireshark or
tshark. The handshake isnt't encrypted and can be captures on either the
host or the server.

# tshark -Vx -Y "ssl.handshake.ciphersuites" -i YOUR_INTERFACE tcp port
