Sounds as if you could use the user profile service. A built service that will replicate AD information and make it available to you via SharePoint.

I want to get these information out from AD to SharePoint Custon List

You can use PowerShell to read the information from AD and write that information to a SharePoint custom list.  There are scripts available just for that purpose from TechNet.

Here is the working code:

#Add SharePoint PowerShell SnapIn if not already added
    if ((Get-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null) {
        Add-PSSnapin "Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell"

    $site = new-object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite("http://ca1vmsp13dev:8005/");  
    $ServiceContext = [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPServiceContext]::GetContext($site);  
    $listName = "CustomUserProfileList"

    #Get UserProfileManager from the My Site Host Site context
    $ProfileManager = new-object Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.UserProfileManager($ServiceContext)    
    $AllProfiles = $ProfileManager.GetEnumerator()  

    $WebUrl = "http://ca1vmsp13dev:8005/"
    $web = Get-SPWeb $webUrl
    $list = $web.Lists[$listName]

    foreach($profile in $AllProfiles)  
        $DisplayName = $profile.DisplayName  
        $AccountName = $profile[[Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.PropertyConstants]::AccountName].Value
        $ManagerName = $profile[[Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.PropertyConstants]::Manager].Value    

        $newItem = $list.AddItem()
        $newItem["EmployeeName"] = $DisplayName
        $newItem["EmployeeNTAccount"] = $AccountName
        $newItem["SupervisorNTAccount"] = $ManagerName

        #Here goes writing Logic to your SharePoint List + Check if account already existing in the SharePoint list then ignore writing.......
        write-host "---------------------------------------------------------"
        write-host "DisplayName for account ", $DisplayName
        write-host "Profile for account ", $AccountName
        write-host "Profile for account ", $ManagerName
        write-host "---------------------------------------------------------"

    write-host "Finished."
