edu.amc.sakai.user.LdapAttributeMapper bean takes a userTypeMapper 
dependency, which controls how Sakai user types are calculated. Several 
userTypeMapper options are preconfigured as named beans in the default 
jldap-beans.xml [1]. You probably want to enable the 
edu.amc.sakai.user.EntryAttributeToUserTypeMapper bean by referencing it 
from edu.amc.sakai.user.LdapAttributeMapper.

Assuming you pick EntryAttributeToUserTypeMapper, use its 
attributeValueToSakaiUserTypeMap property to map from LDAP values to 
Sakai values. The mapped LDAP attribute is specified by 
logicalAttributeName, which should correspond to a key in the 
attributeMappings map in the edu.amc.sakai.user.LdapAttributeMapper bean.

The userTypeMapper options are discussed in a bit more detail in the 
readme. [2]
