Does the Americans With Disabilities Act require accommodations for university students whose disability prevents them from behaving ethically?
Does it forbid punishment of unethical behavior which is caused by a disability?

Behaving unethically, at least as far as it requires or deserves sanctions, requires an element of choice. If the person had no choice, e.g. because of a disability, then sanctions are not called for.
It is probably my lack of imagination, but I cannot think of an disability that requires students to act unethically.
As to how the law views this: talk to a lawyer or the legal department, or equal opportunities department of your university.
