One possibility would be writing an LDAP server backend that is
capable of using Koha's own user authentication routines.  Here's a
proof-of-concept based on Net::LDAP::Server that permits
authentication by bind only:

I should emphasize that this is *just* a proof of concept and is
incomplete in all kinds of respects (and if it calls up your patrons
at night to offer great deals on interstellar real estate, I disavow
all knowledge of its actions) -- but hopefully it gives you the idea.

I suggest also querying the Koha general and development mailing lists
[1] to look for folks who may be using their Koha databases as
authentication providers.
