Do you have recent system state backup? If so, you can perform authoritative restore of that user

or download adrestore (if tombstone lifetime doesn't expire) and restore it, then you have to restore manually attributes.

OK, download adrestore first and in command-line run this sytnatx

adrestore "user-login"

Then find it within Active Directory Users and Computers console. Enable its account, set up password and other missing attributes
