Put the -v option in your command line to chat. This will make it log everything it sends/receives to /var/log/messages.

Pppd is giving you a connect failed message, so it's almost certain to be chat - with more detailed info from the log on what happens when chat goes wrong, you can probably fix this. A solution that often works is, if you are using a chat script in a separate file, to change this, and use a script on the chat command line.

I couldn't make much sense of your initial post - try this
simple script:

pppd asyncmap 0 -detach modem crtscts defaultroute +ua \ /etc/ppp/auth \
 /dev/cua1 115200 \
connect 'chat -v "" ATZ OK ATDT5551212 CONNECT'

Create the file called /etc/ppp/auth, put your username on the
first line, and password on the second line.

The backslashes in the above script just indicate that it is
all one line, and that the script should ignore the line breaks
