I believe that your options are to either

1. Install OID and configure it to obtain authentication information from AD. 
2. Use AD as an LDAP directory and just use LDAP queries to authenticate. 

Option 1 doesn't work in 9i (that is you can have v9 clients but the
OID version itself has to be 10)
