I guess you should prepare the ipa server for a windows domain trust
(even if you won't setup any trust with an ad domain), with
ipa-adtrust-install. Beware that it will overwrite your smb.conf.

With that configuration and the steps described in
http://www.redhat.com/archives/freeipa-users/2013-September/msg00226.html you will be able to use the native windows kerberos libraries and you should be able to open a samba share with your kerberos credentials.
