Why make life so complicated? If you keep the account name the same, the default homes share just plain works. I tweaked mine a bit to lock the Win client into a subdir of the Linux home dir. That way 
Windows is not able to see Linux config files, but files needing to be shared can be placed under .../WinHome on the Linux side.

    comment = %U's Home Directory
    volume = home
    path = %H/WinHome
    browseable = no
    read only = no
    create mask = 0600
    directory mask = 0700
