So far so good, I think...

I assume your eap-ttls.conf file listed /etc/certs/ca.pem as the ca_cert
option, right?

Can you post more of the output?  Run wpa_supplicant with the -dd option
as well, and post the whole thing.

That's not the same cert as the one that wpa_supplicant is getting.  The
country is set to TW here, while the cert DN that wpa_supplicant printed
has the country set to CA.  Do you have to restart the RADIUS server to
get it to re-read the cert, perhaps?  Or did you expect the DN to start
with "C=CA"?
