Yes, there are such hooks. You can look at Squid-ntlm project and ask
Kinkie (Francesco Chemolli) who is working on similar task for Squid. 
Better, come to #samba-technical IRC channel at
and discuss details there. I know that Andrew Bartlett was working with
Francesco on making winbindd more suitable for such task.

In brief, you need to make code that talks with winbindd.
