here some more clues:

- see what's added to Samba logs when you want to join to the domain
- your add machine script seems to be wrong:

shouldn't it be (you forgot about "-w"):

         add machine script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w "%u"

- try if adding machine from command line works:

# /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w somename
# getent passwd

should list you the machine name you just added.
