No, as there are no stand alone tools.

There is just one code base and the various distro packages are built
from this. it may be that the ldb-tools package you have found is meant
for a different version of Samba than the one you have installed.

The last time I looked, Centos didn't have packages from which you
could create an AD domain, is this the reason you don't have ldb-tools
that works with active directory ?
