I couldn't do it with smbpasswd, I could only do it with the 
smbldap-tools package's smbldap-passwd tool, which appears to do it by 
manually creating the lmpassword/ntpassword entries as an ldif and 
putting them up.

If I try with smbpasswd, I get:

$ smbpasswd -D 99 dballing
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:

which claims it can't find the account, except if I search for exactly 
what it claims to be searching for....:
