Your /etc/nsswitch.conf and pam.d configurations look identical to my 10.04
64bit config, other than the fact that I don't have the pam_smbpass.so in
password or pam_mkhomerdir.so in session, so I don't think your problem lies

I would check your ldap configuration to make sure that works properly
before investigating the samba config.
In that regard a few questions come to mind:

Are you using a custom cert for your ldap server?
If so, do you have the root cert installed and do your ldap configuration
files have the right tls_cacertfile entries?
Is your ldap password password properly configured on the 10.04 host?
