You should be able to bind to AD using the following setting.

System Preferences --> Users and Groups --> Login Options --> Network Account Server - Join

I've not yet tried this on Lion but there seem to be lots of reports of AD/Lion issues online.

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
