./bin/samba-tool password set simple2 -U administrator%totoTATA123 -W
Enter new password for account [MATWS\simple2]:
I enter totoTATA333 then I check with
./bin/ldbsearch -H ldap://172.16.100.1 -U simple2%totoTATA333
That the password change has been taken into account.

The thing is that setpassword didn't need an running samba server but
needs you to have a write right on the ldb files of samba4 (samba's
samdb), it can be a problem for simple users.
samba-tool password set can be used by a simple user as it use RPC to
dialogue with one DC of the domain.
