I don't think that you can force Samba to have them "view"ed that way, as 
the permissions in Samba are dependent upon the permissions on the files
themselves (on the server).

But you can force the permissions to be set in a given way by Samba when
files are created or modified.  Look at 'force create mode' in the smb.conf
man page.
