Does AD store a created date against user accounts at all? i.e. the date the account was created? And if so - can this be extracted via any of the AD cmdlets?

Sure it does.
In ADUC, change the View to "Advanced View", then check the "Object" tab in the object's properties.
Or use the Attribute Editor and check the createTimeStamp and/or modifyTimeStamp attributes.
In Powershell:
Get-ADUser -Identity jdoe -Property createTimeStamp, modifyTimeStamp

Open in new window

dsquery * domainroot -filter "(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User))" -attr sAMAccountName whenCreated -Limit 0
