/var/run/dovecot/auth-master is  path to auth-master socket. This socket 
is automaticly created at startup. You have directory called 
/var/run/dovecot/auth-master - thus creating of socket fails.
"path: /var/run/dovecot/auth-master" - it is not path where socket is 
placed - it is socket's name itself. Remove this directory.
