|Performance is often impacted greatly by|
1) Memory on the LDAP server. Make sure you can store as much of your directory data store in RAM for fast access
2) Indexing. Make sure attributes that you search on freqently are indexed. Also, limit what fields you search on to avoid having a heavy indexing tax.
3) Make sure your network connections are stable, and your not connecting on a 100MB half duplex connection while your network equiptment is expecting a full duplex connection.
Once you have auditing those situations, please check your performance again.
50k accounts is not that much, and a 2GHz Pentium Class or 1.5GHz Core 2 system with 1GB-2GB of RAM should perform okay.
