Set it up so that root can change a users userpassword attribute with 
"passwd {username}" command.  That is a PAM issue, and any questions about 
that belong on PADLs pam_ldap list.  Once that works use the "unix passwd 
sync" option of Samba to call passwd when the user changes their NT 
password.  Questions about that specifically should go to the Samba list.
