sssd configuration is quite flexible in this way.
You can override homedir with configuration option
man sssd.conf -> "override_homedir"

However sssd is available just on linux (or FreeBSD)
I'm not sure which clients do you use on Solaris or other
old system, maybe there is a way how to override homedir as well.
Or you can configure home directory attribute to the non-existing
attribute in FreeIPA and use some fallback (if possible)

                                Unfortunatelly, there's no way how to say
                                sssd to use just first letter from name.

Different "prefix" for homedir "/export/home", "/home", "/mnt/nas/users"
could be addresed with the option homedir_substring in sssd conf.

So you could store "%H" in ldap attribute,
but clients need to understand such value.
(sssd >= 1.11.6). I'm not sure about other clients.
