You can try "libuser", it's available in CentOS 5 (yum install
libuser) and apparently has support for LDAP.

"libuser" is an attempt to generalize the useradd/mod/del,
groupadd/mod/del commands to work with generic backends. The
implementation includes a module to work with an LDAP backend, I just
don't know how functional/stable it is...

You can start by installing the package and having a look at
/etc/libuser.conf, and at the commands luseradd, lgroupadd, ... (the
same ones you already use, only with the "l" prefix.)
