Where is that library located on the disk?

Maybe you are getting the system-provided OpenSSL library and not the
one you custom-built.

Recompiling httpd is never needed to switch-out a shared library. You
just need to fix the way the OS loads things.

What OS? What version of that OS? Architecture, etc.?
How did you install httpd?
How did you install OpenSSL (originally)?
Did you build the FIPS-capable OpenSSL library yourself or did you get
it from some other source?
Where is the FIPS-capable OpenSSL library on the disk?
How do you launch httpd?
