"Permission denied" could mean a file permission problem. Is radius.so
executable? Also check permissions for options.xl2tpd and the files
under /etc/radiusclient. Make sure the user running pppd has the
permissions to read the configuration files and execute radius plugin.

Did you debug your radius server to see if your VPN server attempts a
connection to it? If it doesn't, the problem isn't your radiusclient
configuration, it's happening before, at pppd.

Also try debugging pppd. Add


To options.xl2tpd and 

# The next line writes pppd messages to /var/log/pppd.log

To your /etc/syslog.conf. Create the log file (touch /var/log/pppd.log)
and restart syslogd.

It should help you trace down the problem.
