If you had done a migration from the old to new IPA then the passwords would have come along. The problem you're going to have is that pre-hashed passwords are only allowed when adding an entry. To be able to do that you'll need to add some user to passSyncManagersDNs and bind as that user when loading the passwords (you can pull them from the old server by binding as Directory Manager).

You almost certainly will want to remove the user in passSyncManagersDNs once finished.
