[Samba] Samba share authentication using SSSD

Here is my desired configuration:

An external LDAP server, Samba 4.1.8 (not configured as a member server
or as a domain controller), and SSSD configured with the external LDAP
server. Authentication locally and via ssh works fine using pam_sss.so.
When attempting to authenticate a share on windows using an LDAP users
credentials, the request fails with NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED. I'd like to
do this without configuring samba at all to use LDAP, is this possible?
