Sounds like a sudo password problem.

You can try running ansible with the -k and -K options (ask password
and ask sudo password).

I'd suggest that you avoid sudo and passwords, setup an SSH key and
allow root login
without-password in the SSHD config.  Automation + passwords just
equals pain with no gain.
