Here you'd need to set up an own IdP (for example using shibboleth) and connect this with the office365 users. I'm not sure how seemless this works but I think that there should be an idp being able to authenticate the users via kerberos if they're already logged in on a workstation.

An alternative SAML IdP to Shibboleth is Moonshot (https://wiki.moonshot.ja.net/), *especially* if you want to integrate non-Web applications (SSH, Java applications,...)

Disclaimer: I have not (yet) performed such a deployment.
