If you have set up Samba4 as an AD DC and you are now running an AD 
domain, you don't integrate samba authentication with the Unix 
authentication, you do it the other way round :-) .
You should have all your users, groups etc in AD and then set up your 
domain members to get their data from AD, see here:

You do not need to use nslcd or sssd, you can just use winbind, the only 
problem is when you try to use the DC as a fileserver (which is not 
recommended), but this can be worked around.
