there don't need to be machine names (or usernames) in /etc/passwd
when using ldapsam...
what does your smb.conf file look like?

i'm using the smbldap tools with no problems
        add machine script = /usr/sbin/smbldap-useradd.pl -w -n %u

i'm also using an nua backend (this is from samba3)
        passdb backend = ldapsam_nua:ldap://localhost/
        non unix account range = 10000-20000
