Samba over SSH tunnel

I am trying to see if this is even possible.
We have a network in my office of mostly Windows machines, all connected to
the internet via a firewall.
We have a co-located Linux server in another state.
I want to centralize my authentication setup, so that there is but a single
username/password combincation used accross all systems.
I have configured SSHD on the co-located Linux server to authenticate using
pam, and to use pam_smb.
I have three SSH tunnels (although I doubt all three are needed or even are
ssh -2 -L 137:windows.pdc.com:137 local.ssh.server.com
ssh -2 -L 138:windows.pdc.com:138 local.ssh.server.com
ssh -2 -L 139:windows.pdc.com:139 local.ssh.server.com
All of these are very stable and remain open all of the time.
By adding a user in my /etc/passwd file like this:
I can successfully authenticate this against the windows PDC. YEAH!
Now, I am trying to take a directory on the co-locted server, and be able to
share it accross an SSH tunnel.
Any ideas on how I can do this?
