Interesting enough, it is where the config file is.
When I start it using the proftpd in init.d, it
expects the config file to be in /etc/proftpd.conf.
When I go to /usr/sbin and just run the proftpd
(proftpd --config /usr/local/etc/proftpd.conf) it
works great.

It now works if I run it as: proftpd -nd6

It does NOT work if I start it normally
(/etc/init.d/proftpd start).

It's possible, yes. From your logs, it looks like
the checking of the
client-provided password, using the crypt(3) library
function, is failing.
Anything which affects that crypt(3) function is a
likely culprit.
