I'm not sure what exactly you mean here.. Password is not "sent" in case
of MSCHAPv2; hash of the password is used to derive a challenge response
which is sent to the server.

MSCHAPv2 needs a password to work.. Are you talking about requesting the
password interactively from the user?

Please send debug log from wpa_supplicant with -dd on the command line.
In addition, it would be useful to see your wpa_supplicant.conf to
better understand what exactly you are trying to do.
