I have a similar setup with thi settings:

pam password change = no
encrypt passwords = true
unix password sync = no
ldap password sync = yes

It works well, since my users are all ldap+samba based. The 'ldap password sync' updates 
both passwords well. See the manpage of smb.conf for info about this setting.
