You could setup a Samba DC, and then run winbindd (potentially on the
same host).  But it sounds like you are not looking for Samba at all.

If you want to auth directly against LDAP, then ntlm_auth isn't
relevent, as it is for authentication against NT4 or AD compatible
domains.  Have a closer look at the freeradius docs, it should be able
to work directly against a plaintext password.
