smb and Unix use different one-way hash functions to store their
passwords.  Since by design you cannot recover the original password
from the Unix has, you cannot calculate the Windows hash.

However, if you look at Samba's PAM and NSS integration support, you
might be able to get a good solution for unifying the two
authentication mechanisms.
