I cannot advice you about steps you might have missed, probably none. To my 
experience, the documentation is not sufficient.

I can tell you that freeradius can be run in debug mode: radiusd -X Do this 
and have a close look to the output.

If you cannot find any attempt to connect to the freeradius server you need 
to have a close look to the asterisk log files as well. Figure out what is 
going wrong. There should be some clue.

I don't understand the grant access settings. Figure out the user which is 
running asterisk and set the setting appropriately! I remember that I 
needed the following access setting:

-rw-r-----  1 root  asterisk  /usr/local/etc/radiusclient-ng/servers

So read access for asterisk to the servers file. This was not documented at 
all, but somehow logical, if you figured it out.

Met vriendelijke groeten,
With kind regards,
Mit freundlichen Gruessen,
De jrus wah,
