Yes, it is possible with pam_mkhomedir

For example, that configurations works very well:

auth        required      /lib/security/pam_env.so
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/pam_unix.so likeauth nullok 
auth        required      /lib/security/pam_deny.so

account     sufficient    /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
account     required      /lib/security/pam_unix.so

password    required      /lib/security/pam_cracklib.so retry=3 minlen=2 
  dcredit=0  ucredit=0
password    sufficient    /lib/security/pam_unix.so nullok use_authtok 
md5 shadow
password    required      /lib/security/pam_deny.so

session     required      /lib/security/pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/ 
session     required      /lib/security/pam_limits.so
session     required      /lib/security/pam_unix.so
