No there isn't, the only option you might have is exporting to an ADAM server and then running it against that.

Account passwords are stored in the SAM (security accounts manager) database, and these values are hashes which are a bunch of random numbers/characters. Natively there is nothing you can do to extract the passwords (as this would go againts auditing purposes). There are however 3rd party apps that might be able to do what your looking for. You can use SAMInside to recovery passwords from the SAM database. I have not used it but it might be able to do what your looking for.

It really depends on the software that you are using to "audit" the password file. Most programs have the ability and instructions on how to perform the audit.
