You can do it also with the user for which you are changing the password ie:
./bin/samba-tool password set simple2 -U simple2%totoTATA123 -s 
Enter new password for account [MATWS\simple2]:

Of course you are not obliged to provide the password on the command 
line, I just did it because it's more convenient for me on the test system.

Apart from this you're a bit right the help of samba-tool is not 
perfect, as most of it is in python feel free to have a look and provide 
us some patch it should be rather easy to contribute.
