In which case it is easy, especially as the page you linked to has 
'Example'  above the user DN you posted.
Using your favourite way of creating AD users, create a user, that's it! 
The user will have read-only access to AD and read/write access to its 
own AD object.

You should be aware that the user, by default, will be created in 
'CN=Users,DC=example,DC=com' not in 'DC=example,DC=com' as shown on the 
linked page.
