How can I add a Linux user to an active directory account and keep all of the settings / profile from the Linux account?

In other words, how can I add a specific Linux user to AD so that when I login as the AD user, I have all the same settings as the original Linux user?

Up until now I used, in a terminal for the local Linux user,

sudo realm join <domain> --user=<AD user> -U <administrator>

I end up with a new user /home/<domain>/<AD user>/, but the new AD user does not have any settings from the Linux user.
