You can do this via group policy also, Default Domain security Policy ---Local Policies --User Rights Assignment---Add work station to domain and select the user and add it.

The most simple way is add this user into "Account Operators" group in Domain. Then this user will be able adding/resetting passwords of user/computer objects within the domain.

To be more secure, you can delegate for that user appropriate rights on appropriate OU in your domain.
