FreeIPA is a domain controller for Linux/UNIX systems. It main value it
to manage Linux environment inside your enterprise. It can manage users
and groups too as any directory can. It can also authenticate users but
its value is in creating a integrated Linux environment in terms of
identity management. It seems that the setup you have does not actually
have such Linux environment, i.e. Linux machines to join to IPA domain
and manage.
The question was: "Do you have Linux systems to manage?".

You need to check whether Samba 4 supports GPO and to what extent.

Yes as with any LDAP server but if you are planning to use AD than you
do not need Samba 4 either.
You then point your mail service and applications to AD directly.
Most of modern applications have some sort of LDAP integration for
identity lookup and authentication. That means you would be able to
point them to prety much any directory: AD, Samba4, IPA, 389 ...
