Seems to me like you can solve this by opening the right ports on your firewall(s) and configuring a route (on your network) from your DMZ to your Domain Controller(s) for traffic on those ports.

Here's the list of ports used to communicate with Domain Controllers:

Unfortunately I'm not a Linux guru, nor do I know which type and version of distro you use so I can't give you any instructions how to specifically add those to your domain.

You can leave the Linux server in the DMZ.  You need to configure windbind and pam.  This document may help you:

You may also need to configure nss, kinit, and kerberos.  If you leave it in the DMZ and it is supporting a website, you should have an IDS installed.  You may want to harden the Linux server too (implement IP tables, disable services you don't need, have strict password policies, review logs in /var/log/, turn on SELinux ideally disable any GUI desktop etc.).
