that's a horse of another color
First you would have to import the samba schema appropriate for the
version of samba you are using.
Then you would have to realize that the samba schema has
objectclasses/attributes that have nothing to do with
posixAccount/posixGroup/inetOrgPerson attributes (well, I do use
posixGroup but that is with sambaGroupMapping attributes.
Then you would want to use a client that allows a single password entry
and encodes it for the userPassword (posixAccount/shadowAccount)
attribute and for the sambaNTPassword and optionally the
sambaLMPassword. Clients for this purpose are listed here...
or of course, you can write your own code to accomplish this
