I opened a question with Cisco TAC about this because the document you linked to did not work.

In the network policy there are a couple of changes:
Do not put ANY Vendor Specific Radius Attributies (do not put shell:priv-lvl=15)
Add in the following Standard Radius Attribute:
- Attribute-Type = Service-Type
- Attribute number = 6
- Attribute format = Enumerator
- Attribute Value = Administrative   (look under the Other category)

These changes do the same thing as priv-lvl=15 which basically takes you directly to Enable mode.

I can also add that if you are doing this on a SBS 2011 server, the NPS is already installed and configured with several policies.  You need to make sure your NEW VPN policy gets moved to the top of the list.
