I can confirmed you that the following configuration work for me:

unix password sync = No
ldap passwd sync = Yes
passwd program = /usr/sbin/smbldap-passwd -u %u
passwd chat = "Changing password for*\nNew password*" %n\n "*Retype new password*" %n\n"

If you have not set the last directive, you should do: 'smbldap-password'
does not prompt you the same way as 'passwd' for example. You sould also be
careful to not add space or other caracter.
