As you have Windows 7 machines, I personally would install RSAT on one of these machines and use Active Directory Users and Computers to create users, manage group membership etc.   If you point the user's Home folder on the Profile tab to the user's home folder on the file server, ADUC will also automatically create the folder for you with the correct permissions (providing you have set up the share correctly using Windows ACLs).  No need for any pre-exec scripts etc.   After all you are using samba to serve Active Directory to Windows machines, therefore use the Windows tools, they work perfectly well with samba.   Just my personal preference - you choose what's best for you.
