Make sure the data directory in the RadiusNT admin is fully specified.
RadiusNT will look in that directory for the passwd file. You should
see a line with the password the user received, the encrypted password
in the passwd file, and the encrypted password (from the clear text one
the user entered). If you don't see that line, RadiusNT could find the
passwd file.
