you would have to alias the 'passwd' command to run an entirely
different script/program which is capable of changing multiple
attributes on your LDAP DSA or aliased over to smbpasswd (yikes!).

That is not entirely practical but certainly possible - if I recall
correctly, there was some mkntpasswd program that was shipped by
openldap some time back but I don't know if it is still included.
