Windows will never give application programs raw credentials.  However 
this thread: 
<> suggests 
it may be possible to use Kerberos.

I don't know enough about that environment to say for sure this can be 
done, but this is going to be the only possible route, so I'd suggest 
reading the thread a bit more carefully than my initial glance.

(Note that NTLM normally refers to a pre-Kerberos authentication protocol.)
