You can do this by establishing a trust between AD and IPA.

In FreeIPA 4.0 we introduced support for 2FA and TOTP, it still requires
a password, the OTP is only the second factor.

Another option is to sync users and passwords from AD to IPA, we do not
recommend this but it is possible.

Finally there is a very hackish client configuration some people used
where authentication happens against AD but everything else is going
through IPA. I do not feel like recommending this.
