This probably isn't an option if you've already deployed OpenLDAP, but 
Novell's eDirectory has an addon called Identity Manager which does this 
kind synchronization to AD (and many, many other applications) very 
smoothly. Yes it's commercial, but it is relatively inexpensive and it's 
the best damn directory out there in my opinion if you're going to be 
serious about this.
