No, Pgpool-II does not support LDAP authentication. Possible
workaround using Pgpool-II 4.1 (I have not actually tried yet):

- Set LDAP auth in PostgreSQL as usual.
- Set allow_clear_text_frontend_auth = on in pgpool.conf.

This way, clients will be asked their password managed by LDAP, and
you don't need to manage pool_passwd.
