Unfortunately, authentication is not defined at the P6 user account level but is defined at the database level. You could create a separate database for Contractors with Native authenitcation and have them update their projects in that database. The PM in LDAP database could import the Contractor project to LDAP db to update the schedule but that would create a lot of overhead to configure 2 environments and manage the import export process.
Consider what specific benefit would be obtained by having most P6 users (Contractors) use LDAP authentication and compare that to the options\benefits for user access using native authentication. I don't see much benefit for the organization for Contractors to use LDAP (password management?) but obviously that is a decision for your organization to make. Hope this helps or gives you ideas for consideration.
