an extract of your smb.conf would have been helpful.
I assume you have set

security = domain
password server = <your domain controller>
encrypt passwords = yes

and followed the procedure to make the Linux box a
member ot the domain.

This will allow users to connect to the Linux Samba server
with their NT Domain userid-password combination.
To gain proper access to the shares, however, you must
either have matching user accounts on the Linux Box
(could be a different or illegible password) or you must

force user = <linuxuser>

for your share to map the - authenticated - user to an
existing Linux user name.
