It isn't important you have iptables configured or no. Fail2ban adds its own rules make own chains. If you have firewall or don't have it should work.

Look once again at config:

FAIL - jail.local:
enabled  = true
port     = ftp
filter   = pureftpd
logpath  = /var/log/auth.log
maxretry = 3

FAIL - filter.d/pureftpd.conf:
failregex = .*pure-ftpd: \(.*@<HOST>\) \[WARNING\] Authentication failed for user.*
gnoreregex =

/etc/init.d/fail2ban restart
Should work
