    Active Directory itself does not dictate color.  This is handled by the tool on the client.  The usual tool, Active Directory Users and Computers cannot be changed in this way.  You might try to look for other AD Management Tools to see if any of those have colors that can be customized.

    I'm not sure but you may require to edit schema & it can be dangerous to do that without sufficient knowledge.
    ADManager plus is the good tool.
