This depends on where the password is stored.
For Samba3..

If stored in the local SAM database, passdb backend, and you have a backup of passdb.tdb
you could use  pdbedit.

pdbedit -itdbsam:/path/to/backup/passdb.tdb  -esmbpasswd:/root/oldsmbpasswd.txt
pdbedit -itdbsam:/path/to/current/passdb.tdb  -esmbpasswd:/root/cursmbpasswd.txt

Edit  the user's password hash in flatfile  cursmbpasswd.txt
to match the one in  oldsmbpasswd.txt

pdbedit  -ismbpasswd:/root/cursmbpasswd.txt   -etdbsam:/root/newpassdb.tdb

make another backup of samba files.
shutdown samba
move newpassdb.tdb  into place over  passdb.tdb
