No, you need to be a Domain Admin with full privileges.
many thanks Simo,
when I try user who only has delegated admin/management over a OU I
Active Directory domain administrator's password: 
ipa: ERROR: Insufficient access: CIFS server denied your credentials.
That's correct. You need to be a member of Domain Admins group of the
forest root domain or a member of Enteprise Admins group in the forest.

Would joining an IPA server to winAD with realmd be kind of one way
No, not at all.

Trust != joining a machine to AD domain.

Is it even possible(with no reasons against doing so) to join IPA
server/domain to AD?
No. A machine in Active Directory can only be a member of a single
domain. It cannot be a servant of two masters.

I mean I did that and I could get AD users IDs but there was some
problem with krb5, config got messed up and daemon would not start.
If you like to enjoy broken configurations, it is up to you. There is
probably a reason why obvious things don't work. If you want to know
more about Active Directory, feel free to read specs at MSDN. Start with
