You can install samba with the ldapsam passdb backend.
security = user will suffice, you do not need to make it a domain
Authentication will happen only using NTLM, so you will have to add the
samba samAccount objectclass to those users that you want to be able to
log in to samba and the sambaGroups class to those groups you want to
use with samba.
After you added the right objectclass to users you will need to change
the user's password once so that the ipa-pwd-exto plugin can generate NT
hashes for the user.
Once that is done samba should allow you to log in using the ipa
