You can do this using Winbind and setting idmap_ad module. Using
idmap_ad module, the ID of users or groups created by Winbind is set
same as the user or group's Unix Attribute.

I would like to do this to sync permissions between Windows and all of
my *nix systems that are tied to AD without the use of Winbind.

What do you mean "to sync permissions"?
