Installing Microsoft Dynamics CRM Server 2011 in an LDAP directory that is running in Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) is not supported.
no newer information for 2013 has come up.
hope that helps

CRM 2011/2013 on-premises requires Active Directory to install. After installation you can configure claims-based authentication. This allows you to authenticate users with a Security Token Service such as Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS).  Whether ADFS can use other LDAP providers I don't know.
