Have you tried to login anonymously ? Its usually default with anonymous login when first setup. You could try to disable anonymous login by editing your /etc/ftpusers file, then try to login with an actual shell account.
In regard to the "invalid shell" message. Please check the /etc/passwd entry for the user and insure that a shell statement is provided after the last colon. It is usually set to /bin/bash. There are some programs that default the shell as blank when adding a new user.
Also, only if you compiled from source and installed you may need to use --disable-pam on the ./configure command.
