You probably don't want to as it would involve updating the clients to this Samba server to send passwords over in plain text. Samba / Linux / Unix do not have password encryption which matches MS 
password encryption thus the Linux/Unix password goes in /etc/shaddow and the Samba one goes in smbpasswd, LDAP, etc...
