I'm by no means an expert on this but my own sendmail/AUTH solution
would use:

saslpasswd2 -a Sendmail -c -u dexter.fantasia neuromante

I'd also have used pwcheck_method: saslauthd in
/usr/lib/sasl2/Sendmail.conf and I'd make sure that saslauthd is running
(and is set up to run at boot time).

This arrangement works for me.
