If it's a local user you want (with its fils on local system) why are you using 
the autofs facility? Isn't it just a matter of creating the user locally and 
make sure it resides in the local system's /etc/passwd file?  Did you check 
/etc/nsswitch.conf to find out the order the databases are searched?   What do 
you get when you do:  getent passwd | grep test1

HTH,
Jorge
