We cover the autofs possibilities for AD here:

Whilst the method will be the same for extending the schema, the classes
and attributes you need for your schema are different but listed in the
same link. I'm guessing, but converting your ldifs into something either
rfc2307bis or nis can understand should be easy enough. BTW, if you can
convert to the nis schema, Samba4 already has that built in.
Good luck,
