Not possible, sorry. The Last-Logon attribute, like some others, can only be written by the system, it's not an attribute that you are allowed to edit at will.
Note the "Update Privilege: This value is set by the system.".
Last-Logon Attribute
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms676823(v=VS.85).aspx

In comparison "SAM-Account-Name Attribute", for example: "Update Privilege: Domain administrator"
SAM-Account-Name Attribute
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms679635(v=VS.85).aspx

You can only "edit" this value to the current date and time by enabling the account, resetting the password, and logging on with it ...
