Not sure if Samba in of itself is sufficient to pull this off.  However,
there are other commercial products such as Centeris' Likewise and
Centrify's DirectControl that allow you manage  Linux  computers the same
you manage Windows computers - all from a Windows MMC.
Linux computers  and users inherit the  same password policies as Windows
users.  This means that Linux users will be notified  when their password
requires changing and will be given a chance to change at a login.  Password
complexity, length, age and history are  enforced as dictated by the AD
