I'm coming into this half way through but won't ldap passwd sync = yes
work?  Or does that only work when you change your password from samba?

You can use "smbpasswd -r pdcname".
This is the simplest way to change the password.

If you really want to use the passwd command, you will need to use 
winbind in these workstations and the pam_winbind.so pam module to 
change the password trough it.

You could even use smbldap-passwd to change the password directly in the 
base, but you would need to make some changes in the script first.
