Maybe you better should have tried --cacert instead ? ;-)

--cacert is for server certificates, --cert is for client certificates

If the openssl connect works *without errors* then you could also point curl to
the openssl certificates directory with --capath (you must then of course find
out where this is in your openssl installation).
There seems to be no curl option to just use the openssl defaults.
