Not specifically, but you certainly could.  The CKS:ECTS does, however.  You might want to check it out.  You might also be able to use the ECTS provider as a starting point to writing your own with the FBA solution.

It means existing solution only support Sql Server authentication? However I try to execute with ADAM, it is giving me following error whenever I try to change password using "Change Password" webpart. It seems it is related with Security Policy,

I think the OOTB ASP.NET LdapMembershipProvider isn't complete.  Though the documentation shows that is should work, the following post indicates that DotNetReflector shows that it's not actually implemented:

According to that post, if you look into the implementation with reflector, you'll see:

Code Snippet:
 public override bool ChangePassword(string name, string oldPwd, string newPwd)
    throw new NotImplementedException();

That's why you might want to download the source for the ECTS which might have a custom Ldap provider.  I know it at least has one that works with ADAM.
