I'm trying to set up Debian users so their home directories would exist on a shared storage server.  The shared storage server is also running Debian.

Is there a way to set up new users so that their home directories would exist on the shared storage server?

Ya, you setup the NSF share on the server that will act as the storage, and you would mount the NSF resource as /home or /home/users if you want to distinguish between users i.e. local versus directory based ldap, nis, mysql defined users and that is all.
In /etc/fstab
server:/sharename nfs /home/users/

Yes, You can mount shared storage locally as /home directory either via Samba or NFS.
