At the first step you sould connect to ldap  with SSL to modify password  of agents then you should unicode your password string with UTF-16LE
I put a sample for you :

String quotedPassword = '\"' + agent.getPassword() + '\"';
byte[] unicodePassword;
DirContext sctx = null;

try {
unicodePassword = quotedPassword.getBytes("UTF-16LE");
} catch (UnsupportedEncodingException uee) {
throw new LdapAccessException("Cannot encode password" + "???? ???? ???? ??? ????? ???????", uee);

ModificationItem[] mods = new ModificationItem[2];

mods[0] = new ModificationItem(DirContext.REPLACE_ATTRIBUTE, new BasicAttribute("unicodePwd", unicodePassword));

mods[1] = new ModificationItem(DirContext.REPLACE_ATTRIBUTE, new BasicAttribute("userAccountControl", Integer.toString(Agent.UF_NORMAL_ACCOUNT + Agent.UF_DONT_EXPIRE_PASSWD)));

modifySecurely(agent, mods);
