In fact, you still need an /etc/passwd file : you need a system account in
order to create a samba account, but you can use libnss-ldap to redirect
the system calls to the LDAP directory (via nsswitch), this will allow you
use ldap-only accounts...

You do not need smbpasswd anymore.
When using LDAP, you can store the Samba-Password along with other data in
LDAP-DIrectory. Have a look at the howto concerning how to replace
with an LDAP-directory and it will tell you what to do :-)
Furthermore, have a look at the smbldap-tools you can find at
... they will do things like changing passwords for you (as long as you do
not yet use Samba3).
