Put the UID's in AD as uidNumber under the DN of the users and then use
sssd to get them back on the file server. You can use ldbmodify to do
this. Any new users, make sure you also add uidNumber using samba-tool.
To be able do that, upgrade to 4.1

Method here:

You can also use winbind and nslcd to do this.
