Unless you have "invalid users = root" there shouldn't be a problem.
Try creating a file instead:
$ touch /mnt/tillie/tmp/test.txt
And then see who owns the file - it should be root (if you're connected
as root) but I suspect it'll be some other user. You probably need to
specify the user when you connect, i.e.
$ smbmount smbmount tillie/all /mnt/tillie -o uid=0,username=root
