Not sure what you really want. If you want simple replication from OpenLDAP to
AD this is not possible out-of-the-box.

the least of the problem.

What authentication mechanism do you want to use. Simple bind with password?
Kerberos (SASL/GSSAPI)? Etc....

You should really try to explain in more detail what you want to achieve.
