I think I'm trying to achieve the same thing, and I actually asked a
similar question some time ago myself here
The answer was: Take a look at FreeIPA server project.
I did, but I couldn't get it to work because the setup, as for now,
requires a two-way domain trust between AD and the IPA server/domain
(apart from CentOS >= 7.0 for the FreeIPA server). And so far, I
couldn't convince the neither the AD admins, nor my manager, boss,
blablabla to allow that....
Maybe it's a solution for you, though.
BTW, there've been some interesting questions in the same direction in
the corresponding FreeIPA user mailing list. like this thread:

I don't think this is currently possible, SSSD only supports
authentication against an LDAP server, a KDC or variants of the latter
(AD, IPA, ...)
The IPA server mode currently does something similar, the IPA server
which is acting a bit like proxy listens to requests from clients and
does a PAM conversation against locally running SSSD which talks to AD
servers. But still, there is a component (ns-slapd in that case) that
talks to the local SSSD and smart clients that talk to ns-slapd.
