The idmap nss should actually do what you want to do. Are your ldap 
users known to the system?

does "id username" produce an output you would expect from your LDAP server?

The the idmap_nss backend should map users (from LDAP) with the same 
name to the user from AD. I had this running a long time ago but I cant 
find my notes on this.
