I already sent a request to Aruba Sales, but haven't gotten feedback yet and need an answer quite quick.
Do I need a Meridian Server for location based services on an ALE-server or are there any other dependencies you need?

Well from what I understood is that they want to do location based tracking through WiFi. They're using ARUBA AP and Purple WiFi for the analytics part.
So the ALE server will function as a connector between the Purple Wifi software and Airwave I presume? (from the documentation I understood that Airwave is required?) But will I require any additional servers/services for Location Based Tracking?

Your understanding seems correct.
In fact ALE server will agregate all Wifi data (RSSI, location, geofence_notify, application ...) and expose these to third party (via 0MQ message bus and rest API).
So in your case Purple will be the third party which will connect to ALE to get data for analysis.
And you don't even need AirWave for ALE to work. There is a node (calibration mode) in which you put the maps directly on ALE and then you calibrate with your android smartphone.
Hope this helps,
