Why are you trying to sync AD 2003 into ApacheDS (or any directory for
that matter)?  AD can be accessed via LDAP just like ApacheDS (though
AD has its own, peculiarities).  If you need to integrate an
application with AD but need to map attributes, transform data... then
there is either MyVirtualDirectory or Penrose.  If you really want to
synchronize the two you could use Penrose's sync engine or the free
version of Sun's Identity Manager.  The main issue you will see with
syncing is you can't easily sync passwords from AD.
