I don't know much about Kerberos, but:

PAM plugin fails by giving "Permission denied" error. Perhaps PAM's own
logs would show something more? /var/log/auth.log or something similar.

dovecot-auth processes are running as root anyway I guess? Then there
really shouldn't be any permission problems, so I guess it's some kind
of a PAM/Kerberos misconfiguration.
