Write a script/program to find all files with strange chars (the ones
renamed after the move from the NT) and rename them on the unix side to
the proper local üäö...

I think you will find that the values on the unix side are the same bad
value for each char, like:
	x maps to ä	(except that x isn't a "bad" char)
	y maps to ü

Stop samba
Run the script/program
Fix the smb.conf to have codepage settings
Start samba

Some study here may help understanding what went where ...
